Mika Ninagawa, born in 1972, is one of Japan's most celebrated art and fashion photographers. Her signature style is bathed in vivid colors and is dreamlike in its manipulation of depth and field. Her portraits, landscapes, and still lifes feature themes of flora of fauna, and many celebrities seek out her portraiture. She is formally represented by Tomio Koyama's gallery in Japan, and her work has been exhibited widely in Japan and abroad. She has had installations at Colette in Paris and Arndt and Partner in Berlin and regularly participates in Art Basel Miami. In 2001, she received the prestigious Kimura Ihei Award.
Mika Ninagawa was published by Rizzoli New York in October 2010. It is the first monograph to be published in the West on Ninagawa. It features a forward by Daido Moriyama and contributions from Takashi Murakami, Antonio Marras, and Anna Sui.
