In photography, texture is an essential element to transmit meaning to audiences, and designer Miharu Matsunaga uses polka dots to make her work appealing to all viewers. Her series ‘Graduation Work’ features subjects covered in white dots.
This effect aims to send a message of union between people, races and culture. The result is fascinating, as the images look delicate and intriguing. From far away, the dots look like a complete white film covering the models entire body, and from a closer look, it becomes evident the abundance of marks are clearly separated.
Miharu Matsunaga has worked with dots before in her architectural piece called ‘Ten-Ten,’ which means dots in Japanese. Her latest work is just as inspiring and captivating as her last.
