Yumiko Chiba Associates viewing room shinjuku is excited to host an exhibition of work by photographer Shiho Yoshida to mark her selection as winner of the 46th Kimura Ihei Award.
Yoshida’s photography practice is distinguished by the unconventional technique of searching the internet for information and images related to a location, actually traveling to that location to take photos, and constructing multilayered works in which the resulting photos, information and images intersect. Her technique of moving back and forth between the opposing extremes of internet search results and her own photos allows her to explore information spaces and photographs as images, as well as the hybrid materiality of photography. By employing this approach, Yoshida has produced work that consistently critiques the particular set of circumstances in which photography finds itself today.
To celebrate her selection for the Kimura Ihei Award honoring outstanding young photographers, this exhibition will present the Survey: Mountains and The Whale under the Sand series for which Yoshida received the prize. A conversation with cultural researcher and artist Hiroki Yamamoto will also be held during the exhibition.
