Kyoko Hamada is a Brooklyn based photographer who grew up in Japan until her family moved to West Virginia when she was a teenager. Hamada went to New York City to study art history, photography and painting, graduating from Pratt Institute.
Kyoko’s diverse background lends itself to her unique vision, capturing elegance and humour all at once. Her images delight the eye with subtle details and clever compositions that are rich in metaphors.
