    Yuuki Shibata

She presented herself with flowers. It was the first time she'd ever done that. Maybe it's because she's begun to accept and love herself for being sick.

Yuuki Shibata is a Japanese photographer and artist born and raised in Japan. In France in 2017, she participated in the UNESCO Biennale International Design in Saint-Etienne (France) where she began working on a project called “Identity”. She was invited to Moscow Design Museum in Moscow (Russia) in 2019 to work on “Identity” and to also join a solo exhibition at State Institute for Art Studies. This project was introduced in Tokyo Newspapers and has been awarded in the International Photography Awards 2019. Her photography and art projects have exhibited in many countries.
