RYOTA MATSUBARA

RYOTA MATSUBARA

Chiba, JAPAN

1987年千葉県生まれ。千葉県在住。

幼少期の趣味であった釣りで、釣果を使い捨てカメラで撮影することから写真を撮る楽しみを知る。

以前は身近な山や沢など自然を被写体とした撮影をメインに活動していたが、

2015年屋久島の山中での不思議な体験と、下山後に島民に聞いた昔話により

「島と自然と人の関わり方」に関心をもち、その後は屋久島をモチーフとした撮影を続けている。

2017年福岡 Institut Francais, 2017年フランス アルル MONSTREにて展示。

 

Matsubara Ryota was born in Chiba in 1987 and live there.

His life with a camera started when he took photos of fish he caught with a instant camera in his childhood.

Since then he has mostly taken photos in nature including while climbing mountains and rivers.

In 2015, he had a strange experience during his photo shoot in the mountain of Yakushima and heard an old tale from islanders after he went down the mountain, which made him interested in the way of interaction between the island, the nature, and the people.

Now he continues to take photos of Yakushima as his theme.
