'White H2O' was published with a limited 100 copies on the occasion of Kurita's 'White H2O' exhibition at Cholon (Sapporo Japan) on 30 January and 8 February 2009."
Snow. White crystal that is formed from H2O. Falling from heaven as a result of the extraordinary coldness. Snow creates a world covered in white. However, it also melts and disappears. Snow has a special grace. It can touch at that time only." -Kurita's text from the prologue of 'White H2O'
Snow melts, disappears, and then only exists in the memory. Kurita is so mesmerized by the existence of snow that she photographed it for four years in Iceland, Norway, and Japan. The 30 photographs of the land and people covered with "White H2O" has sensitive transparent texture. It is fantastic, like paint on canvas.
