Hiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan
Yoshikatsu Fujii, born and raised in Hiroshima city, graduated from Tokyo Zokei University of Arts with BA in art film. He began photography work in 2006, and now lives and works in Hiroshima. His photographic works often deal with his own view towards the relationship within the family.
His project "Red String," motivated by his parents' divorce and produced as a hand-made photobook of limited 35 editions was nominated for several awards including the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards. The book was also selected by TIME magazine as one of the Best Photobooks of 2014. The book is retained in MoMA The Museum of Modern Art Library in New York.
His following project, “Incipient Strangers,” depicting the wider subject, expanded from his parents to his extended family. A photobook with the same title, published for the exhibition at Reminders Photography Stronghold in Tokyo, was also won the Self Publishing PHOTOLUX Award.
