Miki is a Japanese photographer currently living in Basel, Switzerland. Before coming to Switzerland, she studied shoes design/making in London and Japan and worked in the fashion industry in Tokyo. Photography has always been a passion for her. It is on the same creative page as an expression of designers working within boundaries.
Japan, where she was born and raised, has a lot of natural disasters because of its geographical position. Most recently, the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011, and the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident caused by the tsunami. This disaster made her think a lot more about the relationship between humans and nature. Nature can be a great healing power for the human spirit, but it can also take away, and devastate the human world. Humans cannot control nature.
