■ About me

Mankichi Shinshi (born in 1984) is street / documentary photographer based in Japan. He started photography in 2013 with self-taught style. And now, at various public places mainly in Asia, he's walking around and taking photographs. It’s a seeking of the way of confronting the scenes where anyone can see ( =general society), with his individual eyes. He pushes the shutter button when he feels “something”, and names to “something” as a photo project. By stacking such activities, he tries to affirm this world's fragments and his life one by one. And his works were featured many media like LensCulture, iGNANT, AINT-BAD, GUP magazine, Leica Camera Blog, etc, and got some awards.

マンキチ シンシ(1984年生まれ):2013年頃から独学で写真を始めました。現在は、ストリート/ドキュメンタリー写真家として、アジアを中心としたさまざまな公共の場でスナップ写真を撮り歩いています。誰もが目にしうる光景、つまり社会一般との向き合い方を個人的な視点から模索しているのです。「何か」を感じてシャッターを切り、その「何か」に名前をつけ、プロジェクトとして編纂していく。こうした積み重ねによって、世界と自分の人生を端っこから少しずつ肯定していけたらと考えています。
