Haruki tells us that there is more to see than what our eyes can see or any cameras can capture. She erases the characteristics of the landscape or motifs to puzzle people’s mind and leads us to think outside the box.

Haruki beautifully uses the black and the white in her photographs by intentionally under or over exposing images or moving around the negatives during the printing process. The lack or exaggeration of light and shadows deconstructs our perception of objects. The artist leaves the viewer in a state of contemplation; we are now creating our own new views of the world.

In this series, we feel as if we are invited on a different kind of journey. In this journey, the viewer should eliminate any definitions, any pre-notions in order to acquire new perceptions. Under a new composition, any landscape or animals now gained a new significance and a new make-up.
