Toshiya Murakoshi Biography

Toshiya Murakoshi was born in 1980 in Sukagawa, Fukushima Prefecture. He graduated from Nippon Photography Institute in 2003. Currently based in Tokyo, Murakoshi has shot his hometown since 2006 and continuously produced serene, yet powerful, landscape images that appear to trace his memories of time spent in his hometown. In 2009, he established the gallery 'TAP' in Kiyosumi-Shirakawa, Tokyo. His solo exhibitions include timelessness at Konica Minolta Plaza (Tokyo, 2008), uncertain at Shinjuku Nikon Salon (Tokyo, 2009), kusa wo fumuoto [sound of stepping on grass] at Fukushima Airport (Fukushima, 2012), and Burn After Seeing at Kichijoji Art Museum, Musashino City (Tokyo, 2014). He is the recipient of the Photographic Society of Japan Newcomer’s Award (2011) and the Sagamihara Photograph New Face Incentive Award (2015). His works are included in the collections of the National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
