Tomohide Ikeya was born in Kanagawa, Japan. Since 2002 he has worked as a freelance photographer.
In his latest series, BREATH, the infinite number of air bubbles enables viewers to see breath happening with vivid clarity.
Breath is usually an unconscious process, but breathing underwater takes effort. Losing air and being controlled by water, we realize true value of things that always exist around us, in the moment of losing them, says Ikeya.
His work has been exhibited in Germany and New York, as well as across Japan.
