Most people think that technology is for young people, but nobody told Kimiko Nishimoto that. She's an 89-year-old Japanese grandma who's been snapping and editing her own pictures for the last 17 years, and as you can see below, her style is certainly unique!

She didn't get into photography until she was 72 years old. Her son was teaching a beginner's course and so she decided to enroll, unaware that she was about to awake a passion and a talent she never even knew she had. She instantly fell in love with photography and set about snapping various quirky and comical self-portraits. She had her first solo exhibition ten years later, at a local museum in her home town of Kumamoto, and now she's about to have her work exhibited at Tokyo's Epson epsite imaging gallery. Titled “Asobokane" - meaning "let's play" - the exhibition will feature previously unseen work from the octogenarian artist, so if you happen to be in Tokyo between December 15, 2017 and January 18, 2018 then be sure to check it out. Think you're too old to try something new? Think again.
