There is something extraordinarily magical about Japan and its culture and Japanese photographer Shin Noguchi proves that through his photo series of everyday life in Japan. He catches the peculiar, surreal, and strangely beautiful shapes and situations that occur when people don't think anyone is watching.
Noguchi, himself, describes his street photography as an attempt to capture extraordinary moments of excitement, humanism, the way of life, and beauty among the flow of everyday life. His approach to photography art is discreet, poetic, and enigmatic, which allows the artist to find the subtleties and complexities of Japanese culture without relying on staged, no-finder, or hipshot photography.
Explaining his philosophy, he says, "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."
