Japanese photographer Yanagi Miwa currently has a show going on at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (aka Syabi) through the month of April. On display is her ongoing work “my grandmothers.” The artist asks models to envision themselves 50 years down the road, then recording the image in a surrealistic format. The piercing question takes us on a journey beyond the dreams and aspirations of young women to a place where success is no longer of primary concern. And each photo is accompanied by an intimate dialogue.
If you are interested in the artist’s work, have a look at her early work “elevator girls” in which the artist envisions a world where only elevator girls roam.
