List of photobooks by photographer Shibata, Toshio

Toshio Shibata is a Japanese photographer who studied photography in Belgium.

He is specifically interested in imposing architectural constructions and their integration in their surroundings, often natural landscape: simple and geometric shapes such as dams or bridges, of which he usually captures architectural details, in a way that infuses both life and a strange quality in these landscapes.

He has published, among other photobooks, "Contacts" (Poursuite, 2013), "Japanscapes" (The Velvet Cell, 2017) and  "Painting" (Chose Commune, 2021).
