Recommended by Nikki(Fine Print Photographer & Content Publisher): Each one of Tomura’s perfectly printed drypoint plates with flawless chine-collé freeze me for a moment. I breathe and take in the smells that my mind makes up as I imagine this peaceful scene. Each small drypoint mark builds up into this gentle outdoor scene that feels like a short poem. I can’t help, but smile and relax.
