Shin Noguchi, born 1976, is an award winning street photographer based in Kamakura and Tokyo, Japan, and is a member of the iN-PUBLiC street photography collective. 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.
"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."
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 five times, as well as The Independent newspaper, the Liberation, and numerous other web and print publications. His work was included in David Gibson’s "100 Great Street Photographs", and was selected as the back cover.
