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.
"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 six times, in Courrier Inte'l, Internazionale, Libération, Tages-Anzeiger, The Independent, etc, and some assignment work has been also published in Die Zeit, Libération, etc.
