This doorway is from a temple in Japan.
Lucie Rox, an artist of African descent, was born and raised in France and now splits her time between Paris and London. She shot this photograph while traveling through Japan in December 2017. Using chromogenic film which she processes by hand in the dark room allows Rox to deepen and enrich the colors, enhancing the mystery of this simple doorway. “Photography, which as a medium is, by essence a very simple thing and very matter-of-fact,” says the artist, “can be stretched and pushed to create some form of abstracted reality.”
