Yurina Niihara


I was born in Kagoshima, Japan in 1986. During her studies in social and humanities, she has developed a deep curiosity for human being and the different ways people can express their feelings.

 Fukushima catastrophy was the trigger of my life as a photographer career.

After the earthquake, I moved to Paris where I studied Photography in EFET and graduated in 2016 as Major.

 Being lost in a new country far from her roots gave me a new point of view on Life, feelings and emotions. My work “Monologues” was its first photographic demonstration. Yet, I started to explore the sensual and sexual problematics that lies in any livings with “Erotism” series.

 My work is exhibited in Arles, Paris, London and Dubai.

My work is the reflection of the Japanese sensitivity on a French mirror
