Kimiko Yoshida, born in Tokyo in 1963, lives in Europe since 1995. She’s a really talented artist.
Her pictures play with backgrounds, colours and make up and try to show in a subtle way women’s condition all over the world.
It’s good to notice, these pictures are not retouched! I really love the way images are composed and the way different objects are used.
Right now Kimiko is exposing in Paris her series of women portraits.
The expo is called “Femmes du monde” and it’s a solo show you can see it at:
