Ishiuchi Miyako: Grain and Image
Ishiuchi Miyako is currently one of the most highly acclaimed photographers in the world. She is best known for her coarse-grained, monochrome pictures of Yokosuka and former red-light districts in various parts of Japan, as well as her work “ひろしま/hiroshima,” which deals with clothing used by victims of the atomic bomb. This year is the 40th anniversary of her solo exhibition “Yokosuka Story,” which in effect marked her debut as a photographer. This exhibition focuses on “grain,” one of Ishiuchi’s keywords, and consists of about 200 items from 13 series, from her early years to never-before-shown works.
