Photographer Kimiko Yoshida’s self-portraits are luscious quasi-monotone scopes of texture and form. ‘My self-portrait is a still life. I disappear into the background. There is no search for identity in my work. I know that identity doesn’t exist. There are only infinite layers of me. If I peel them back, like the skin of an onion, there will be nothing underneath’. The above is from her Bachelor Brides series.
