From writing in the sky to sculpting from liquid motion, photography has always been a part of Shinichi Maruyama’s life. Born in 1968 in Nagano Japan, he started photographing the mountainous terrain surrounding his own home city.
From 1994 onward, he spent 4 years as a freelance photographer, developing his own unique style, and beginning his documentary photographic studies of Tibet. He would go on to work for Hakuhodo Photo Creative in 1998, producing innovating advertising campaigns, and with access to their latest high-speed strobe equipment, began to develop a fascination for liquid and motion imagery.
Upon leaving Hakuhodo, Shinichi began a deeply introspective, artistic period. He travelled frequently to Tibet, to complete two photography books about the Spiti Valley region, The Spiti Valley, and Spiti.
At present, Shinichi Maruyama continues to work on and produce new artwork in New York
