The World the Children Made, Shin Noguchi

In this project, I try to express “children’s world” more realistically and more positively than Ray Bradbury’s short story “The World the Children Made”, by narrowing down the subject to children from main project “Something Here”.

When I looked their world the children of today show from time to time, I have remembered that I learned about an individual and society in there, and that “time” and that “smell” were certainly over there too. I think this time retrace own past, in other words, it may be replaced with “Save” in today’s society.

At that time, I strongly feel that I want to regain their world in the place to be, it has been removed from contemporary society and it has been rebuild in the virtual/cyber space, and it’s an essential element to form the city space that can coexist with natural environments.

Shin Noguchi is an award winning street photographer based in Kamakura and Tokyo, Japan. He describes his street photography as an attempt to capture extraordinary moments of excitement, beauty and humanism, among the flow of everyday life and has a discreet, poetic and enigmatic approach that is sensitive to the subtleties and complexities of Japanese culture without using posed/staged and no-finder/hip shot.

“Street photography always projects the “truth”. The “truth” that I talk about isn’t necessarily that I can see, but they also exist in society, in street, in people’s life. and I always try to capture this reality beyond my own values and viewpoint/perspective.”

He is also featured in MAP Talent, Liberation, The Independent, Leica Camera and many others, and you can find one of his photos on the back cover of Prestel’s new book “100 Great Street Photographs”, and he will also join photography charity for The Hepatitis C Trust in UK in October
