“The Last Cosmology, for all its astrological import, is a more deeply personal work, what [Kikuji] Kukada has described as ‘the cosmology of a changing heart’. Yet these otherworldly images also evoke—through eclipses, lightning cracking open the sky above a city, crows perched on television ariels beneath a passing meteorite—a sense of impending catastrophe. . . . Here, that catastrophe is suggested by the grainy, often strangely angled photographs and, by extension, the intense, almost hallucinatory, state of mind that informs them.” Sean O’Hagan • Guardian
