Hideo Takiura was born in 1963 in Tokyo, and graduated from Tokyo Agricultural University in 1986. After working as a landscape designer for a few years, he began pursuing a career in photography.
Tokyo Bodies collects work shot by Takiura on the streets of Tokyo from 2000-2007 with his trusty 6cm x 6cm medium format camera, and it is a witty, whimsical look at people's idiosyncracies that might remind one of photographers like Mitsugu Onishi or Issei Suda, but which is really Takiura's own world.
Takiura's follow-up, Tokyo Products, is also available.
