Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

Ishiuchi has produced collections of photography since the late 1970s. Her first book was a study of Yokosuka, where she grew up. Her work favors the oversize grainy prints and gritty subject matter that characterize the pictures of many photographers in the late 1960s and 70s who preferred the are-bure, or grainy-blurry. She began to take close-ups of the bodies of the very old in the early 1990s.
