Seike Tomio

Japan Born in: 1943

Following his graduation from The Japanese Photographic Academy in 1970, Seike was an assistant photographer until 1974. He started working freelance, primarily within the fashion industry, in addition to portrait photography. Around this time, he made his first move to England and has since lived between Europe and Japan.

One of Seike's first series of works was Zoe; these portraits of Zoe Leonard, taken over a five-year period, bought him significant recognition as a photographer. His later works of figurative nudes, along with his other series, such as Paris, Glynde Forge, Waterscapes, and most recently Overlook enhanced his reputation as a contemporary master working in a classical style.

Expertly balancing between the abstract and traditional, using only natural lighting, he manages to capture the quiet moments in life most people fail to notice. Seike's prints are beautifully exquisite small format works; and until his 2011 series Overlook, he worked exclusively in black and white.

His work has been widely exhibited throughout Europe, Japan, and America, and resides in a number of private and public collections including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Maison Européenne de la Photographie, and the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris amongst others.
