Mayumi Hosokura

Mayumi Hosokura (born 1979) creates photographs that seduce her viewer through a conceptual approach that reshapes reality within the artifice of darkroom processes. Desire and danger merge in her Crystal Love Starlight images of androgynous male and female models whose fictive tales are based on real-life tabloid news stories. Hosokura, a recipient of the 2011 Foam Magazine Talent Award, has published several well-regarded photobooks. Her most recent book Transparency is the New Mystery, published by MACK, will be released at the same time as this exhibition.
