TANGENTS by Shiori Akiba


Shiori Akiba is a Japanese photographer based in London, whose work is inspired by certain characteristics of Japan, where she was born and raised.

In Japan, nudity tends to give people a negative impression. I have been questioning the way women are treated in our society and how nudity is often equated with pornography. My inspiration comes from such uneasiness I feel about the world I see. 

Object and Object
Nudity and Nudity
Line and Line
They touch each other and yet never connect
Lines that never cross each other
No way to come together as one
