Tomoya Fujimoto was born in Bordeaux in 1989. After studying in Tokyo, he returned to Bordeaux to join the Beaux-Arts art school. In 2014, he earned a master's degree in photography from ENS Louis Lumière in Paris.
As a young photographer, he studied with still life specialists and chose this field as his preferred means of creative expression.
Tomoya particularly appreciates matter and the interaction between what is seen and what can be revealed by light. With his lens, he can intimately capture the movement and shimmering of the vast canvas of the ocean and expose the entire world caught on the surface of a leaf. By building a subtle balance between the marvelous and the trivial, Tomoya offers layered art enhanced by a surprising intimacy with his subjects, a reflection of his attachment to the profound nature of things.
He self-published “Rien que la mer” (Nothing but the sea) in July 2020. His book will be republished in September 2021 by Editions Amers.
