Sakiko Nomura (b.1967), who studied under Nobuyoashi Araki as his assistant, is known for taking the pictures of male nude for nearly twenty years.
『tsukuyomi』 is composed of photographs she took in Kanazawa, a city with cultural tradition facing to the Japan Sea. The entire book is designed as to convey the intimate atmosphere between the photographer and the models, and all of them seem relaxed on the bed and directly staring at her camera. The black and photographs show the bodies of the models with tender and sensual texture. The blank page facing to each photograph is printed with pale cream color and the color reflects and gives the subtle shade to the surface of photograph. The reader might experience the feeling of sharing the intimate feeling of sharing the time and space with the models.

『tsukuyomi』 stems from the god in the oldest legend of Japan, literally the god of moon, symbolizes the night.
