Yoshino Ōishi (大石 芳野 Ōishi Yoshino?, born May 28, 1944) is a renowned Japanese photojournalist.

Ōishi was born in Suginami-ku, Tokyo on 28 May 1944.[1] Seeing Melanesian art while at Nihon University had a big effect on her, as did a visit to Vietnam and Cambodia in 1966. After graduating in photography, she became a freelance photojournalist,[2] working in west Africa, southeast Asia, and Europe.[1] In 1971 she held an exhibition in the Nikon Salon of photographs of a Ghanaian child growing up in Nagano; she then spent three years photographing New Guinea.[1] She worked on portraiture, and documented the effects of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, the effects of wartime dioxin in Vietnam, perestroika in the Soviet Union, and more.[1]

Ōishi's work on Vietnam won her the Domon Ken Award.[2] In both 1982 and 1989 she won the Annual Award from the Photographic Society of Japan.[3] She has taught at Tokyo Polytechnic University.[2] Her work is in the permanent collection of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.[1]
