Mankichi Shinshi: Unnatural Beauty

Born in 1984, Nagoya, Japan. Currently lives and works in Nagoya, Japan.


Too unexpectedly being faced with or experiencing something unnatural only occurs occasionally. But do we catch it? Photographer Mankichi Shinshi documents his daily out-of-the-blue occurrences in order to confirm his own contour. To capture these unnatural scenarios in Nagoya’s streets, he carries a camera everywhere he goes.

Mankichi Shinshi is a self-taught street and documentary photographer. According to him, photography is a way of seeking out and confronting the scenes anyone can see, but only a few captures. His photographic works have been featured in LensCulture, iGNANT, AINT-BAD, GUP magazine, Leica Camera Blog, among others.
