Understanding Kimiko Yoshida through photography should be an easy task because she is one of the most prolific art photographers of her time. But, the Japanese-born artist is not prone to being understood: That is by intention.

Living and working in France, Yoshida uses her self-portraits as a societal inquisitor to explore the many aspects of being human, playing out roles of submission and dominance, of male and female, of what is and what is not seen. She uses herself as a canvas for the exploration and her camera as the observing eye.

The gallery shows some of her newest work.
