Nobuhiro Fukui was born in 1972 in Naruto City in Tokushima Prefecture. In 2004, he participated in a year-long workshop with photographer Osamu Kanemura. In addition to solo shows in Tokyo (2005) and Berlin (2006), Fukui showed work in two Tokyo Wonder Site group exhibitions (2007): Wonder Seeds 2007 and Tokyo Painting – My Little Everyday Sceneries. He currently lives and works in Tokyo.
The above image is taken from his series Juxtaposition and more from this series and his other work can be seen at Fukui’s website. He is represented by Tomio Koyama Gallery and on the gallery’s pages more information about his motivations and resulting photographs can be found. Of particular interest should be an interview with Nobuhiro Fukui on the Juxtaposition series.
