YOKO NAITO

Japan 1983

My interest is the correlations of nature, humans, animals and their artifacts in the different environment. The juxtapositions with a different kind defines the significance of existence between each other. I was born in a small village in Japan and grew up in Tokyo area. The experience of the gap between rural and urban life has had a significant effect on me. This experience is to be a trigger of my interest about the environment.


Yoko Naito has graduated from Nihon University College of Art with BFA in Tokyo. She was based in New York for 6 years since 2009. She received the Sony World Photography Awards 2015, 3rd Prize in 'Travel' and Shortlist in 'Lifestyle' of the Professional category. Also, she was selected by the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts -Young Portfolio in 2014 & 2015, Japan. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Europe and Japan.
