Kazuaki Koseki

1977 born in Yamagata, Japan.
His work is devoted to the landscape of Yamagata and Tohoku, Japan. Evoking the five senses through the four seasons, he photographs the world—weaving the mountains, the forests, and the rivers together.

I was born in Yamagata, Japan, to a family that runs a photo studio that takes family photos and portraits.
He has been familiar with photography since he was a child, and now he continues to photograph the nature of Yamagata and Tohoku while continuing to photograph people at the photo studio.
This is because I became familiar with fly fishing from 20s and naturally felt awe.
This is to convey and protect the many problems that I have felt while walking in mountains, forests and rivers, such as "nature that changes due to Global warming" and "environmental problems".
Including the award at Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2021,LensCulture Critics' Choice 2021, BigPicture Nature world Photography Competition 2021,Photoville FENCE 2020, 
He has received numerous awards at home and abroad.
It has received international acclaim, including photo exhibitions in the World Economic Forum Davos,the Natural History Museum in London, the California Academy of Sciences, 11 cities in North America, and Russia, as well as being published in the National Geographic web edition and the Japanese edition of National Geographic magazine.
