SATO Shintaro was born in Tokyo in 1969. He graduated from the To-kyo College of Photography in 1992. He joined Kyodo News as a staff photographer after graduating from the Faculty of Letters, Arts and Sci-ences at Waseda University in 1995, and he has worked as a freelance photographer since 2002. His work is themed around the distinctive at-mosphere – or the “soul” – of Tokyo that is generated from the city’s his-tory and the topography and character of the land itself.

SATO received the Newcomer’s Award from the Photographic Society of Japan in 2009, and the Tadahiko Hayashi Award in 2012. His works have been shown at exhibitions in Japan and abroad, including Geography(Fugensha, 2019), The Origin of Tokyo (P.G.I., 2019), The Spirit of the Place (Canon Gallery S, 2014), and Tokyo Tokyo and TOKYO – Contemporary Japanese Photog-raphy vol.13 (Tokyo Photographic Art Museum, 2016). He is the author of several photography books, including Geography (2019) published by Fugensha, The Origin of Tokyo (2019), Night Lights (2014), Risen in the East (2011), and Tokyo Twilight Zone (2008), published by Seigensha Art Publishing, Inc.
