Bio

Born in 1972, Mika Ninagawa is Japan's most popular photographer. Her photographic style is one that is instantly identified by her versatile style and the drawing from various fields. Her work is highly acclaimed across the generations from teen fashion magazines to high-end commercial fashion and advertising.

She is promoted by Tomio Koyama Gallery (www.tomiokoyamagallery.com), which introduced both Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara to the world. Her works are constantly exhibited and much loved by art collectors. Her film directorial debut, "SAKURAN" has been officially entered into the Berlinale Special section of the 57th Berlin International Film Festival. To coincide with the festival, she also held a photography exhibition at Arndt & Partner, which was extremely successful.

Her enthusiasm has gathered the attention of publishing houses, resulting in publication of one or two best selling photographic books every year for the past seven years. She relishes art direction and conceptual shoots and her well-thought out concepts come to life in vivid visuals and seemingly incongruous forms. She does not only specialize in portrait photography, but also in still life photography of flowers, goldfish and landscapes. Her influence resonates with the many followers who copy her styles and mimic her stance.
