I have just been looking at “Shoku” by Frauke Eigen, it is a book of black and white images taken by her in Japan between 2006 and 2008.

The pictures are mainly sections of building cropped so closely as to turn them into simple abstracts.

The whole book has a strange anonymity to it even in the few people pictured faces are seldom visible.

I find her work incredibly beautiful and strangely hypnotic she has a feel for texture that I really envy and admire.
