Born:1948 in Tokyo, Japan.
In 2002, Takeshi Shikama turned to photography after a career in the field of design. He was drawn to forests as the subject for his large format camera. It was the “invisible world”, hidden behind the “visible” that he worked to capture. His first photo collection was published in 2007 as Mori no Hida - Silent Respiration of Forests. This project became the launch of his lifetime endeavor.
