A Japanese photographer and cinematographer, born in Aichi in 1974, Mikiya Takimoto started taking photos at the age of 16. He worked at various studios, including that of Tamotsu Fujii, becoming independent in 1998. Alongside his photographic work, he films with the director Hirokazu Kore-Eda, collaborating on films such Soshite Chichi ni Naru (“Like Father, Like Son”), winner of the Jury Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and Sandome no Satsujin (“The Third Murder “), which competed in 2017.
The photographic work of Mikiya Takimoto is rooted in time, over the seven continents, often in extreme conditions under
omplex protocols. It requires a long drawn out photographic process to achieve these unique images, each one of which carries within it the symbolism of a global momentum. His work has been published in a dozen books and shown at multiple exhibitions.
