Documenting life’s moments: Hikono Shin Noguchi and his experience documenting memorable moments with Leica

Shin Noguchi is an award winning street photographer based in Kamakura and Tokyo, Japan. He describes his street photography as an attempt to capture extraordinary moments of excitement, beauty and humanism, among the flow of everyday life and has a discreet, poetic and enigmatic approach that is sensitive to the subtleties and complexities of Japanese culture without using posed/staged and no-finder/hip shot. “Street photography always projects the “truth”. The “truth” that I talk about isn’t necessarily that I can see, but they also exist in society, in street, in people’s life. and I always try to capture this reality beyond my own values and viewpoint/perspective.”

26 January, 2017 at 23:22 p.m., Japanese street photographer Shin Noguchi and his wife gave birth to the third baby girl Hikono. Two years ago, he recorded three months until his wife gave birth to the second baby girl Kotoyo using Leica M6, and shared it as “Until We’ve Met” on his website, but this time, he used a Leica M9-P. As before, she has become the impending premature birth. Our first daughter, 7 years old Yumeji who was given a trauma by the last experience had a nightmare every night, and refused to go to school because she suffered separation anxiety disorder… I decided to entrust all support to Yumeji for giving birth and change her uneasiness to the confidence. The morning of the end of holidays when Yumeji got a new sister safely, was actually the figure of my daughter who is now going to elementary school happily with neighboring friends.
