Japanese fine-art photographer Miho Kajioka's work explores the existence of beauty in imperfection and transience.

Kajioka is inspired by the Japanese tradition of "wabi-sabi" - the appreciation of beauty in the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete - as well as the Zen/Taoist belief that the essence of an object exists rather than the empty space inside it and around it.

Her delicate and bleakly beautiful images explore these concepts, honouring the empty space as much as the subject itself, and inviting the viewer to consider the constrasts between factual and unknown, visible and invisible.
