MIYAKO ISHIUCHI

Japanese photographer Miyako Ishiuchi has been awarded this year’s prestigious Hasselblad prize. The annual prize has since 1980 been awarded to international photographers such as Henri Cartier-Besson, Boris Mikhailov, Nan Goldin and Sophie Calle. This year’s winner Miyako Ishiuchi has for decades investigated abandoned places and what happens to a city, an apartment, or a pair of shoes when the the temporary owner or inhabitant leaves, passes or is victimized. Post-war Japan has been her setting for these stories. In her series Mother, Ishiuchi photographed belongings of her late mother. Currently she is working on a similar project in Mexico City of Frida Kahlo.
