This series of images by Japanese photographer Asako Narahashi has been exhibited in Japan to wide acclaim; this monograph marks its first publication in book form. The photographs were made while the artist stood chest-deep in the ocean facing the shoreline; through them she accomplishes the extraction of the viewer's mind from its surrounding, and one finally succumbs to the hallucinatory power of the ocean. In the words of photographic historian, Kotaro Iizawa, "the feeling of being stranded, however, is strangely comforting."
