Tokuko Ushioda 潮田登久子

A dialogue between Rinko Kawauchi and Tokuko Ushioda

Supported by KERING’S WOMEN IN MOTION

Scenography by Miho Odaka (APLUS DESIGNWORKS)

Born in Tokyo, Japan. Tokuko Ushioda studied under Kiyoji Otsuji at Kuwasawa Design School and graduated in 1963. She taught at Kuwasawa Design School and Tokyo Zokei University from 1966 to 1978. She has worked as a freelance photographer since 1975. In 2018 her Bibliotheca series won the Domon Ken Award, the Photographic Society of Japan’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Higashikawa International Photo Festival’s Domestic Photographer Award. Other representative works include ICE BOX, in which she photographed the contents of various families’ refrigerators. In 2019 she won the Kuwasawa Special Award.

This exhibition, a dialogue between two female photographers of different generations, is supported by Women In Motion, a Kering program to shine a light on women in the fields of arts and culture. Since 2015, Women In Motion has provided a platform for reflection on the role of women – challenging mindsets and providing opportunities for greater recognition of their contributions in all areas of the arts.
