Momentary by Nico Perez

Published by He He (2015)
36 Pages,18 x 26 cm, Paperback

The self-published debut book from Tokyo-based photographer Nico Perez, Momentary is filled with images showing moments in time, which he seeks to portray in a poetic way so as to reflect how emotions, people, surroundings, and life in general are all momentary. From intimate family portraits and interactions, to tranquil natural and urban scenes, his images are soft, hazy, and dreamlike. Originally from Spain, Perez moved to Japan in 2009 and now works as a freelance photographer, drawing inspiration from colours and the delicate qualities of light, and capturing how these can influence one’s mood.
