About the Book
Yuriko Yamaguchi is one of the most original sculptors in contemporary art. Yuriko Yamaguchi Photographs is a personal visual history of the artist and her life, as photographed by Carol Harrison. It began as an assignment, and progressed as a friendship that Carol Harrison treasures beyond words. The photographs of Yuriko, her husband, her children, and her art, represent a life completely lived as an extraordinary artist, devoted wife, and caring mother of Seiji and Mari. The images in this book cover more than 30 years. Also included are excerpts from important reviews, which provide insight into the complex layers of expression within Yamaguchi's art.
