Mikiko Hara (原 美樹子 Hara Mikiko?), born in Toyama in 1967,[1][2] is a Japanese photographer.

Hara graduated from Keio University in 1990, and then studied at the Tokyo College of Photography until 1996.[1][2][3]

Using a medium-format camera, Hara takes photographs of people she encounters outside, in the train, and so forth. Comparing her photography with that of Rinko Kawauchi, Ferdinand Brueggeman writes

Mikiko Hara's photography is poetic as well, but she has a different topic. She talks about distance and isolation of people in public spaces – especially of women.[4]
