About

Born in Tokyo, Kyoko Hamada grew up in Chiba, Japan until her father’s job relocated the family to Wheeling, West Virginia when she was fifteen-years-old. Hamada came to New York City to study art history at Manhattanville College before eventually getting her degree from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where she studied photography and painting. Her subject matter has often been ordinary objects stylized and staged into subtle quiet moments dealing with self-referentiality and various metaphors. Hamada's photographs have been featured in AI-AP, PDN 30, British National Portrait Gallery and the British Journal of Photography among others. Her latest series, I Used To Be You was released as a book by London publisher Pocko in 2016. Kyoko lives in Brooklyn, NY with her partner Oran and their son Ozzie and a cat named 99.
