This rare book from renowned Japanese photograper Miyako Ishiuci is a thought provoking exploration of the effects of age and environment upon the human body.
"Throughout the entire year of 1988, Miyako Ishiuchi, 42 years old at the time, photographed the hands and feet of women the same age as herself. In her photographs, Ishiuchi focused on fingers and ankles, wrinkled toes and hangnails, all of them standing out only faintly from the gloomy background.
These delicate fingers and toes, with their deep wrinkles and thin nails, with each woman’s occupation listed in the captions, stimulate their viewer. Inevitably, we think about the roads these women have taken in life, we imagine the furthest depths of their personalities." Mika Kobayashi Tokyo Museum of Modern Art
