古家万/Man Furuya


Man Furuya Homepage
Man Furuya was born in Tokyo in 1970. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design in the United States, he began using an 8x10 camera to photograph long exposures by night. Furuya shifted his base to Tokyo in 2005, where he continues to photograph traditional Japanese landscapes and contemporary urban settings.
Furuya's photographs are high-definition prints that present lively, unvarnished depictions of the finer details of his chosen landscapes, characterized by an extreme attention to and control over their overall composition. By setting up his camera in a fixed position and photographing each landscape over a long period of time, Furuya captures the trails of light left behind by the moon and stars across the night sky, animating his photographs with the dynamic action of the passage of time.
