“Ryoko Suzuki is a Sapporo-based artist working primarily in photography. Using highly constructed, digital images, Suzuki challenges the assigned gender roles, stereotypes and fetishization of Japanese women. Using at times humourous and at times disturbing juxtapositions of imagery, Suzuki creates strong, conceptual works that question the dominant portrayal of women, not only in Japanese culture but also in a global context.”

  1. Terrific blog – so many great finds – thanks for your posts.

    I really liked photographs by Ryoko Suzuki – (I think you have attributed the copyright to someone else, though)
    Best wishes,
    Pete
