Ryuji Miyamoto is one of the few privileged photographers who have managed to win an Ihei Kimura Memorial Photography Prize in their lifetimes. Apart from this prestigious award, Miyamoto was also handed the Shashin-No-Kai Award and the 55th Art Encouragement Prize from the Ministry of Education.
Born in 1947 in Tokyo, Japan, Miyamoto is also one of the chosen few who got to embark on an international photography grant courtesy of the Asian Cultural Council. In 1997, he won the Leone d’Oro award for the Best National Pavilion in the 6th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale.
Miyamoto has gone a long way from his first solo exhibit in 1977 at the Shimizu Gallery in Tokyo. Now, he has shown his works at international galleries such as the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris, Gilles Peyroulet and Cie Gallery in Paris, Form Zero in Santa Monica, Kunstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, and Museum for Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, to name a few.
Apart from shooting portraits, Miyamoto, who happens to be a Graphic Art Design graduate, is also a full-time professor. From 2001 to 2005 he taught at the Kyoto University of Art and Design. From 2005 to present, Miyamoto teaches at the Kobe Design University.
