This 89-Year-Old Shoots Playful Self-Portraits


Kimiko Nishimoto picked up a camera for the first time when she was 72 years old. 15 years later, the 89-year-old photographer is now receiving a good deal of attention in Japan for her photography.

Nishimoto is a talented still life photographer who captures the tiny, beautiful details of flowers, but she also shoots lighthearted self-portraits of herself in bizarre costumes and situations. Many of the images are captured using a wireless camera remote.

Nishimoto will be holding a month-long photographic exhibition of her silly photos in Tokyo next month, teaming up with EPSON for the prints. The show will run at the Epson Imaging Gallery in the Shinjuku Ward of Tokyo from December 15th, 2017, through January 18th, 2018.

Here are two TV segments about Nishimoto that aired in Japan:
