Pleats Please Travel Through The Planet by Yuriko Takagi
Yuriko Takagi is a Japanese photographer. After studying graphic design at Musashino Art University in Tokyo and fashion design at Trent Polytechnic in England, she worked as a freelance designer in Europe then started taking photographic portraits as she journeyed through Asia, Africa, South America and the Middle East, focusing on “human existence” – a unique perspective involving fashion and the body. A lover of travel, locations in Asia and Africa have continued to capture her attention, and has kept her on the road. In between destinations, she is temporarily in Tokyo. Her works are held in numerous prestigious collections such as The National Museum of Modern Art, Japan, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo and more.
