Statement:
Shin Noguchi 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, beauty and humanism, among the flow of everyday life and has a discreet, poetic and enigmatic approach that is sensitive to the subtleties and complexities of Japanese culture without using posed/staged and no-finder/hip shot.
"Street photography always projects the "truth". The "truth" that I talk about isn't necessarily that I can see, but they also exist in society, in street, in people's life. and I always try to capture this reality beyond my own values and viewpoint/perspective."
He is also featured in MAP Talent, Liberation, The Independent, Haaretz, Leica Camera, iGNANT, LensCulture, and many others.

I'm shooting with M6, sometimes M9-P.


鎌倉と東京を拠点に活動する、鎌倉市在住ストリートフォトグラファー。
「非日常な瞬間は我々の日常の中に存在してる」という彼の言葉通り、美しさとヒューマニズムに満ちあふれた驚異的な光景を、我々の日常生活の流れの中から捉えるのが彼の写真の特徴である。日本文化の持つ複雑で繊細な要素を慎重に扱って表現しており、詩的でどこか謎めいたアプローチによって生まれた彼の写真は、国際的に高い評価を受けている。また、人々の生活を撮らせてもらう立場として、被写体と正面から向き合うことがストリートフォトグラファーにとって最も重要であるという考えから、周りに気づかれないように胸や腰の位置から隠れるように撮影するいわゆる「ノーファインダーショット」や、その場にある物を動かしたり人々にポーズを取らせるような「演出」を一切行わず、徹底的に「日常」と「瞬間」を捉えることに拘っているストリートフォトグラファーである。
海外で多くの個展・グループ展を行っており、ライカや、インデペンデント紙/リベラシオン紙/ハアレツ紙/ハフィントン・ポストなどで特集されるなど、世界各国のメディアで紹介されている。過去の主な受賞歴に、アジアストリートフォトグラフィーコンテストで2年連続ファイナリスト、ロンドンのギャラリー主催のコンペ優勝、MAPトゥールーズ国際フォトフェスティバル2014優勝、2016年ソニー・ワールド・フォトグラフィー・アワード日本部門賞など。
2012-2015年まで、国際ストリートフォトグラフィーチーム"Street Photographers (Vivo)"に所属。
