SHIORI AKIBA

 photographer

I'm a Japanese photographer currently based in London. My idea is based on certain characteristics of Japan, where I was born and raised. In Japan, nudity tends to give people a negative impression. I have been questioning the way women are treated in the society and how nudity is often equated with pornography. My inspiration comes from such uneasiness I feel about the world I see.
