The word “toxic” evokes fraught relationships between family members, romantic partners or colleagues. In Hideka Tonomura’s case, the torrid relationship in her life is between herself and her chosen medium of expression — photography.

“Toxic,” the final installment in a three-part series, explores the Kobe-born photographer’s interpretation of “the essence of love and life” by turning the camera on herself. The entire trilogy, collectively titled “Love,” is currently on display at Zen Foto Gallery in Tokyo through July 2.
