Since 2012, Kyoko Hamada has been photographing herself as the fictional character “Kikuchiyo-san”, an elderly woman living a delicate and fragile existence. This body of work resulted in a collection of 99 photographs which often use humour, metaphors and storytelling to represent the process of living and ageing and confronting us with the fact that everything is in a constant state of evolution, and hopes to remind us that life is a temporal experience.

Currently available through Spoonbill & Sugartown Books (Brooklyn), McNally Jackson Books (New York), Pocko (UK) and directly by contacting Kyoko.
