While at King’s College London, Issey focused on developing her photography skills by documenting climate movements, interning for Magnum Photos, and taking classes at Central Saint Martins as well as assisting on commercial and editorial projects. As part of her undergraduate degree, Issey spent six months studying Japanese in Tokyo after receiving the JASSO Scholarship. The following summer she returned to Japan for two months to complete her photobook about her time in Japan. Between her undergraduate degree and postgraduate degree, Issey spent time living in China and France before returning home to work for an intersectional feminist magazine. While studying at Oxford, she combined her love for photography, activism, and environmental campaigning by researching the impact that visual digital media has on public engagement with the climate crisis. Since graduating from Oxford University, Issey has been working as a freelance photographer and creative producer. Her clients include FUJIFILM and Rolling Stone UK and her work has been published in British Vogue, PAPER Magazine, The Times, VICE and Dazed Magazine. During this period, she has also remained active in the climate space and co-founded Hothouse Book Club, a digital and IRL book club that champions a climate justice perspective. Issey is proficient in Japanese and French. This fall, Issey will be returning to London to continue working as a freelance photographer and consultant on climate crisis communication projects.
