Junku Nishimura

(b.1967)


Observing Junku Nishimura's work is like translating a simple moment into a deep sentiment. Capturing a "human life second" into a cinematic moment... or vice versa.
No high contrast, light is everywhere. 

Born in a small coal-mine village in 1967, in Yamaguchi prefecture, western Japan, where he lived until 18. Entered college in Kyoto and he studied Latin American affairs. After college performed as a club DJ, worked as a construction worker and he got a job with a cement manufacturer, worked tunnel construction sites across the country as a concrete expert. And he got a Leica and he began photographing the places he worked. After 18 years working, he quit his job and photographed countries and regions wandering around the world. He now works as a freelance photographer based in Yamaguchi.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. Then, little by little, the commitment to share it.
Choice, preference, ignorance, evidence, all assumed.
A desire to discover, an encouragement to remember. Sometimes.
