Shin Yamazawa (Chiba, Japan, 1954)
My career as a photographer began at an advertising agency in Japan where I worked for 10 years. Many of the jobs were for foreign companies, mainly from Europe. I got fascinated by European culture. As time went by, the dream of working in Europe became clearer.
29 years have passed since I opened the studio in Madrid.
The first ten years I struggled every day with two quite different ways of seeing life, such as the Japanese and the Spanish are.
It was in Europe where I realized that photography is not only a matter of technique or beauty of images, but one must also find a way to express oneself as an individual. The main thing is the power of expressiveness.
My goal is the creation of my own universes through color and form.
