    「海外に住んでいた頃、日本の家族に思いを馳せて祖父が物静かにレンズを覗く姿を思い、私もカメラを通して興味を抱くものや掛け替えのない瞬間を写真に収めました。そして、ミュージシャンの姉の影響から自身で作詞作曲した曲を発表する等、感じた事を芸術溢れる日々の中で表現して来ました。祖父が他界した時、大切な存在が消えてしまう虚無感に襲われ、その時に触れた自然の神秘的な美しさやその中に潜む記憶や物語に耳を傾ける様になり、目に見える世界を超えて感じる事を写真や映像や音楽等で表現して行ければと思いました。」

Influenced by her grandfather, Yukiko majored in photography at the Parsons School of Design in New York, and went on to study 19th century photographic techniques at the Center for Alternative Photography to further deepen her understanding of photography. She also participated in the School Of Visual Arts Photography Residency Program.

She has held solo exhibitions at Tobi Art Fair Eizendo Gallery, Gallery Seizan Ginza, Daimaru Shinsaibashi Art Gallery, Japan Center of Photography and other venues, and has participated in group shows at venues including Seibu Shibuya Art Gallery, National Art Center Tokyo, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Center for Fine Art Photography, and Soho Photo Gallery.

    "I was fascinated by my grandfather taking photographs and from as far back as I can remember, I carried a camera around shooting whatever took my sight. It was the experience of a lose of my grandfather while living overseas that opened my eyes afresh to the mystical beauty of Japan’s nature and prompted me to lend an ear to the memories and tales concealed in its interstices. I hope to continue to take photographs that probe what lies beyond the visible world. "
