Japanese Photographer Adds Skirt Flipping Installment to SCHOOLGIRL COMPLEX Series

Staff Writer July 11, 2016 July 12th, 2016

Photographer Yuki Aoyama is back at it again with another installment of his Schoolgirl Complex series, How to flip a skirt in a cute way: Schoolgirl Complex 4.

The Schoolgirl Complex series (2006-2015) offers an intimate and slightly voyeuristic look into the world of Japanese schoolgirls. In much of his work, Aoyama focuses on the juxtaposition of his playful imagery against the rigidity of the stereotypes associated with uniforms (another one of Aoyama’s popular series depicted Japanese businessmen jumping in their suits). In this latest series, as the name suggests, the photographs revolve around the whimsical action of “skirt flipping” that defies the disciplined and reserved image associated with a school uniform.

The photographs will be displayed at a Tokyo exhibition from July 22 to July 31 at the Yukai Hands Gallery.

Meanwhile, you can check out the book featuring the photographs on Amazon or watch the film inspired by the photography series, Schoolgirl Complex, here!
