First, a chance encounter: that of a Japanese artist and the ambitious gallery Lazarew. Yuriko Takagi owes the opportunity to exhibit her photography in this beautiful space because, “she looked like an artist.” And she was an artist—and an original and spectacular artist at that. She has pursued a personal approach to photography for years, developing it in parallel to the illustrations she does for the fashion world and some of its most illustrious designers. Eighty of her photographs appear in the recent Pleats Please, showing the work of Issey Miyake. Takagi’s photographs have been exhibited at some of the world’s biggest institutions, including the National Museums of Shanghai and Tokyo.
