To kick off the 2019 fall art season, MIYAKO YOSHINAGA is pleased to present its second solo exhibition of works by Mikiko Hara, an award-winning Japanese artist known for her square-format snapshot photography.

In Hara’s latest series Kyrie— the title of which is inspired by its mystic sound rather than its origin in Christianity — the artist’s intuitive eye taps into hidden narratives behind seemingly mundane moments in the suburbs of Tokyo. Hara utilizes a classic film camera to unassumingly approach her subjects at close range. Speaking on her work, Hara says, “There is no set theme; I’m not trying to communicate a particular message. Instead I gamble on serendipity. I hope that each snapshot will stir some fragment of memory within every viewer, arousing complex feelings and emotions that can’t be easily put into words.”
