Shiori Akiba

I wanted to get rid of various concepts from "naked" and see naked as "naked"

It belongs to all of us.
We were born naked.

Artist biography

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.
