One of Japan’s pioneering woman photographers, Miyako Ishiuchi has been instrumental in the development of Japanese photography. Her Yokusuka Trilogy of the late 1970s was a pathbreaking exploration of a woman’s perception of urban space in a gritty military port town. More recently, her black-and-white photographs of body fragments evoke the physical and psychological changes that occur with the passage of time. Ms. Ishiuchi discusses her life and work with Christopher Phillips, Curator, International Center of Photography.
Held in conjunction with the exhibition Mother’s at Sepia International (January 24 – March 15, 2003).
Followed by a reception.
