HI MITSUI SAN, WHERE ARE YOU BASED? AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
My name is Koichi MITSUI. I am a professional photographer based on Tokyo.
HOW DID YOU START TAKING PHOTOS WITH YOUR MOBILE PHONE? WHAT FASCINATES YOU?
I photographed it with a Japanese high-performance mobile telephone for around 10 years. It is exciting that I photograph it and can upload a photograph immediately.
WHAT IS YOUR SOURCE OF INSPIRATION?
I get inspiration from light and a shadow or the neighboring topography.
COULD YOU TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR RECENTLY PUBLISCHED BOOK “IPHONEGRAPHER”?
I held a photograph exhibition only for iPhone in Epson gallery of Shinjuku in June. This prolonged a photograph in A0 and challenged the limit of the power of expression of iPhone. And it published collection of photographs “iPhonegrapher” only for iPhone from Raichosha in this month. In Island Gallery of Kyobashi, I held the second photograph exhibition by iPhone. With a magazine from ei-publishing called “flick!”, I performed woman model photography by iPhone 4. I am also very excited about EYE’EM going to New York. I hope to be part of it.
