This is the first monograph to be published in the West on the work of Mika Ninagawa, one of Japan's most celebrated photographers. The appeal of Mika Ninagawa's photography can best be summed up by a signature approach that is bathed in vivid colors and is dreamlike in its manipulation of depth of field. Whether it is portraiture, landscape, or still life, at the heart of her work are themed looks that rotate between flora, fauna, landscapes, and glamorous young women to create Ninagawa's lush fashion tableaux. A cultural superstar in Japan, where celebrities seek her portraiture, she is now breaking out in the West.
