    Masumi Shiohara

Masumi Shiohara was born in 1974 in Nagano, Japan. Graduated from the department of physics at the faculty of science in Toyama University. He worked at a micro-machining company as a development engineer. After leaving the company, he took over the management of the family orchard from his parents and is now running a farm. While growing fruit here he became interested in capturing them into works of photographic art, a skill which he picked up by himself. The inspiration to capture these photographically originally came when he was requested to supply fruit on a branch to a botanical artist
