Miyako Ishiuchi, Mother's #3, 2001

Ishiuchi has released her new book entitled, Sweet Home Yokosuka, 1976-1989 (2010, PPP Editions) in conjunction with an exhibition of her work at Andrew Roth Gallery. The title combines three early bodies of work that form a trilogy; Apartment (1978), Yokosuka Story (1979) and Endless Nights (1981), all classic photography books of the post Provoke period. Together the photographs manifest a personal document primarily of her hometown Yokosuka, a place of compromised identity, accommodating two large American Naval bases since the late 1940s.
