Born in 1976, Taiji Matsue is one of the most acclaimed modern Japanese photographers. Matsue studied at the University of Tokyo’s Department of Geography, but his diploma was put to the wayside when he decided to focus on photography.
In 1987, he showed his first solo exhibit at the Zeit-Foto Gallery in Tokyo. In 1999, he held his first solo exhibit outside Japan – at the Staff Gallery in New York. In 2004, he shot to mainstream international stardom when his images were featured in the Les Rencontres d’Arles Festival in France. A year after, his images were displayed in the Museum Schloss Moyland in Germany.
Matsue’s images were highly celebrated in many foreign countries. In 2006, his snapshots were included in the Cohen Amador Gallery in New York and the L.A. Galerie in Germany.
Matsue’s photo series and collections have also been published. In 2001, his images were published in Hysteric Glamour. His most recent book is “Cell” which was released by the Akaaka Art Publishing in 2008.
Matsue’s images were recognized with several laurels, such as the New Photographer Prize from the Higashikawa Award in 1996. In 2001 he was given the 27th Ihei Kimura Award together with Rinko Kawauchi.
