Mariko Shindo is a relatively young photographer who graduated in 2001 from Tokyo Visual Arts. In bibo
, her first photo book, she presents a series she has been continually working on the last few years -- a portrait of the large series. These are not your normal street snaps or cityscapes, however. Through hand development and other "distressing" means, we never get a clear view of the subject, but rather feel the push and pull of the urban environment.
