Photographs: Ishiuchi Miyako

Price: 88

Comments: 298 x 228mm, hardcover with jacket

Ishiuchi was born in Gunma, raised in Yokosuka. With her early trilogy "Yokosuka Story," "Apartment" and "Endless Night," she presented a series of strolling images that captured the mood, feel and memories of the streets where she grew up.

Since "1・9・4・7", which featured close-ups shots of the arms and legs of women born in the same year as her, she has continued to her pursue an interest in documenting in black and white the scars left on the bodies of various subjects.

In the 200os she broke new ground with "Mother's", a series of photos of clothing and possessions left behind by her own mother. These works, which highlight the past of time and suggest an entirely new way of looking at things by casting the fresh light of the "now" on "things" left behind by the deceased, were exhibited at the Venice Biennale and gained recognition around the world.

Since then she has continued to present to the world new possibilities in photographic expression with "hiroshima"(2008), a series of photographs of clothing and personal effects of atomic bomb victims archived at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum; "Silken Dreams"(2012), which tackes as its theme Taisho- and Meiji-period "Meisen" kimonos and other vestiges of the silk industry that once flourished in Gunma prefecture, where both Ishiuchi and her mother, whose name she took as her professional name, were born; and more recently "Frida by Ishiuchi"(2013), in which she photographed the personal effects of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

She is recipient of the 2014 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography.
