Kazuyoshi Nomachi, one of Japan’s preeminent photojournalists

Born 1946 in Kochi Prefecture, Nomachi studied under the photographer Takashi Kijima, launching his career as a freelance photographer in 1971. A journey to the Sahara Desert in 1972 led to extensive photojournalistic coverage of Africa including the Nile River region, Ethiopia, and the Great Rift Valley. From the late 1980s, he turned his attention to the Middle East and Asia and undertook long-term coverage of places such as China, Tibet and Saudi Arabia, honing in on the lifestyles and faith of people living in harsh climates. Since 2000 he has focused mainly on the Andes, India, and Iran. The resulting photographs have been published in magazines and as books, and shown in exhibitions worldwide, garnering much attention. Among his many photo books published internationally are Sahara, The Nile, Tibet, Mecca, and A Photographer’s Pilgrimage. He has won numerous awards, including the Domon Ken Award, the Minister of Education Award for Emerging Artist, the Photographic Society of Japan’s International Award, and in 2009 the Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon.

Bulb Mode

Long exposure photos captured in Bulb Mode (30 seconds or more)

As Hamnoy sleeps… by Andy Fowlie
What brought this image to my attention immediately was the sharpness of the huts in the foreground. This scene is very moody and the huts contrast the image nicely as well as add depth. Also excellent use of Bulb Mode. This is exactly what I was looking for in the brief. Very well done on a wonderful image.

Buachaille Etive Mor…, Dreamland…, …

«My adventure with photography has started not so long time ago as in 2005. Photography faced “cyber era” which accelerated its development and photo web portals were getting more and more popular among many new enthusiasts of photography . At that time I came across simple compact camera. Fun I was having taking photos was so great that family photos were soon pushed into the background, my family cannot forgive me until now;). What motivated me most were top quality photos with perfect compositions from places I’ve never had chance to see. Then it was clear for me that if I dare to go one step further taking landscape photos will be a source of greatest satisfaction.

Today, traveling across the world’s roadless tracts together with my camera and stand, I feel like a hunter who is aimed at capturing some interesting part of reality. What’s more dependence on weather conditions and light makes it even more challenging for me.»
