Yuna Yagi is a Kyoto-based photographer whose work, since her debut in 2010, has been praised by critics both here and abroad. Her photos have been featured at the Kyotographie International Photography Festival and earned her the Hasselblad Award in 2016.

Rooted in an architectural background, Yagi’s environmentally focused artworks take a multidimensional approach that portray her thoughts via architectural concepts and poetic sensibilities.

Utilizing the exhibition space at the Pola Museum Annex to its fullest, 30 of her photos will be organized with that architectural background in mind, eschewing the simple frame-on-wall presentation and instead being placed on the floor, or viewing them through a transparent object made of an acrylic material to explore more diverse expressions and possibilities.
