Keiichiro composed flowers and took a photograph while being conscious of conflicting things such as inorganic and organic, light and shadow, bud and flowering.. The relation between conflicting things produced the concept of the “empty centre”.
Keiichiro Muramatsu was born in 1972 in Shizuoka, Japan. He attended a Focal Point professional photography course in Vancouver in 2001-2002. After going back to Japan, he established a portrait studio ”The Fourth Avenue Studio” in 2008 in Shizuoka, Japan. He has started to learn “Nageire” (literally, “thrown into”) which is a freer form of flower arrangement, placing innocent wild flowers simply in rough-hewn vessels, from 2013. He also established an atelier for producing his works in 2014.
