Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in England
Miyako Ishiuchi

Miyako Ishiuchi
LONDON  •  Michael Hoppen Gallery  •  Ongoing
Displayed across all three floors of the gallery, the show includes photographs from Miyako Ishiuchi's early trilogy Yokosuka Story (1976-1977), Apartment (1977-1978), and Endless Night (1981); then prints from Hiroshima; and works from her most recent series Silken Dreams, exhibited now for the very first time outside Japan. Miyako Ishiuchi was born in 1947 in Japan, a country whose culture had been marked by the influence of the US servicemen living on the naval bases in major ports and cities during the military occupation post World War II. The presence of the western soldiers had a profound effect on Ishiuchi’s early childhood, and inspired her to produce her first body of work Yokosuka Story. Alongside Shomei Tomatsu, who taught her to print, and Daido Moriyama, Miyako Ishiuchi is one of a renowned group of Japanese photographers who confronted the trauma present in post–war Japan and the dawning of a new era, by using their cameras as eloquent tools to express, record and explore what it meant to be Japanese at this pivotal moment in history.
