Tatsuki Shirai

A Japanese filmmaker/photographer, born in Chiba (Japan).

He studied Cultural Anthropology at Hitotsubashi University (Tokyo)

and conducted fieldwork in Sikkim, the Eastern Himalayan Indian state, for one and half years.

After completing a one-year course at Institute of Contemporary Photography in Tokyo, he lived in Thailand for 2 years and photographed local people's everday life, landscapes, and especially Karen people of a village located in the highest mountain called Doi Inthanon in Chiang Mai province.

In 2019, he completed his masters in Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester with his short documentary film, "TEUGA" (Seedlings), shot in the Karen village.

His current interests center around the lived experience and aesthetics of everyday life and landscape as well as the potential creative intersection of art and anthropology.
