Publisher's Description

Beginnings: 1975 is a collection of Miyako Ishiuchi’s earliest photographs. Ishiuchi discovered the images by chance while preparing a solo exhibition at the Yokohama Museum of Art.

The photos were taken from within Ishiuchi’s daily life, and developed in a makeshift darkroom in her parents’ house. The black-and-white photos “provoke no nostalgia, no sentimental memories; they appear instead as mysterious proof of the depth of the decades between that time and my life today,” writes Ishiuchi in her afterword (available in Japanese and English), adding: “Although I still find them imperfect, I recognize I already had the vision that led me to create Yokosuka StoryApartment, and Endless Nights.”
