Hisashi Itoh-Photo

Hisashi Itoh-Profile

Born in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.
I was born and raised in a home of craftsmen; I had the chance to experience
and learn many different things since I was little.

I went to a design institute and I discovered the world of photography accidentally.
I was working at the design of a poster, as my first project, but I wasn’t satisfied
with the photos taken by somebody else for this project, so I began to study the
art of photography so that I could take better pictures by myself.
Once I discovered photography, I became completely captured by this art.
I continued to work and study the art of photography day and night.
And when my tremendous passion connected me with what became my second
love,music, I made the most important decision of my life: to become a
professional photographer.
Ever since, from the love for these two arts, many photographs of artists and
musicians have been born.

In 1986 I set up a studio in Meguro, Tokyo where I've been building my own
experience by photographing many Japanese and foreign artists and taking many
other kinds of pictures.
I also took pictures for CD jackets, music and fashion magazines, advertising,
and many others.
I was lecturer at many photography schools, camera manufacturers,
TV documentaries and programs.

As part of my lifework, I put a lot of effort in monochrome artistic photography
and so in 2004 I held a photo exhibition in Firenze, Italy (Palazzo Vecchio,
Palazzo Strozzi) with such artworks.
Currently he is actively performing presentations of Japanese culture in many
countries of the world.
