TOMIO SEIKE (JAPANESE, b. 1943)
Since the 1970s, Japanese photographer Tomio Seike has produced small format, hand printed images. Working slowly and methodically, he spends a number of years on a single series, producing only 4-5 images a year. Seike uses natural or pre-existing light and refuses to use a tripod. He has produced works in Paris and appreciates the still-lifes and nude form. Seike's work is featured in many international collections.
