Kimonos are passed down from generation to generation. Roughly after three generations, it is best to treasure the garment more than wear it. Like Ishiuchi Miyako states, "The kimono was a historical artifact that should not have been meddled with," and proves her adoration in the craftsmanship of the kimono through Childhood Garments. In this book, readers will see photographs of the power memories and objects have through kimonos.
Ishiuchi Miyako is Japanese photographer that was raised in Yokosuka. She was known for capturing images of familiar streets and buildings in her hometown which transformed later during the post-war period into one of the largest American naval bases in the Pacific.
