BBC News & Magazine Feature with Japanese Artist Minori

BBC News & Magazine Feature with Japanese Artist Minori

This week I had the pleasure of meeting, interviewing and photographing Japanese artist Minori, whose signature 'Shironuri' style (meaning painted white) and decadent handmade costumes have earned her notoriety both at home in Japan, and abroad.  You may recognise her from the BBC documentary about Japan featuring Joanna Lumley!  

I photographed Minori at the Grange Hotel where she was meeting fans at a private tea party, and also at Frieze Art Fair in Regents Park, along with artist and fashion icons Daniel Lismore and Kala Kala.  This shoot was being filmed by BBC News and was featured as part of a short documentary on Minori!  The photos and interview are also featured in the November 2017 issue of MyM Magazine (the official magazine of MCM Comic Con).
