Notes For Editors:
Born in Japan, Michi Nakao has always worked in visual forms, as an illustrator, painter, and make-up artist. She moved to London in the mid-1970s. In Japan she began working extensively as a stylist, choosing costumes for artists appearing in photo and video shoots. It is from this intensive experience in the world of fashion and music during the 1970s and early 1980s that Michi Nakao's photography derives. This is the provenance of her elegant, beautiful images.
“A strength of Michi's work is her ability to find majesty in the mundane.” (Chris Salewicz, Novelist )
