Shin Noguchi, born 1976, is an award winning street photographer based in Kamakura and Tokyo, Japan. He describes his street photography as an attempt to capture extraordinary moments of excitement, humanism and beauty among the flow of everyday life. With his discreet, poetic and enigmatic approach to his art, Shin is able to capture the subtleties and complexities of Japanese culture without relying on staged, no-finder or hip shot photography.
Shin was the 2014 Winner of the MAP Talent Prize at the Festival de photo Toulouse. He has been featured on The Leica Camera Blog, Courrier Inte’l, Internazionale, Libération, Tages-Anzeiger, The Guardian, The Independent, etc, and some assignment work has been also published in Die Zeit, Libération, etc.. and his new book will be published this year in Italy.
“Street photography always projects the ‘truth’. The ‘truth’ that I talk about isn’t necessarily that I can see, but that also exists in society, in street, in people’s lives. And I always try to capture this reality beyond my own values and viewpoint/perspective.”
