"Presenting the brand new smartphone app of famous “SNAP-SHOT” artists who have contributed to this critically and commercially acclaimed PhotoCard collection, available now nationwide in famous variety stores from Hokkaido to Kyushu.
Next in the series, Mr. Amaki Ichigo, the artist photographer who skillfully manipulates film, words and colors in his works.
◎Artist introduction: Amaki Ichigo
Born May 14th 1977 (blood type AB) in Osaka, Amaki Ichigo is a professional toy cameraman famous for his pictures of Ferris Wheels and his many pet cats. While working on a degree in Design he received a prize in the International Lightning Design Competition for Students.
Freely manipulating the colors and saturation options in toy cameras, Amaki Ichigo creates a somewhat nostalgic and poetic world of pure sight with his photographs. Through this he has been awarded the Lomohome Of The Week Prize (issue #189) and the top prize in the Airborne Cats Photo Contest.
Amaki Ichigo’s environmental film “Kokoro no Kanransha” has been screened in Tokyo Dome’s “SPA LaQua.” He has also written toy camera columns for the web magazine “Shashin-bana” and the camera magazine “Sha Girl,” as well as providing content for KiSS tools and KiSS smartphone calendars. Amaki Ichigo’s works have been exhibited in Tokyo, Osaka and Paris. Today he’s involved in a wide range of projects, including giving lectures on toy cameras.

◎What is SNAP-SHOT?
Is it a postcard? A photo library? No, it’s an open to all collection of assorted, original PhotoCards. A SNAP-SHOT is not something you send out like postcard, nor is it a commercial photograph library for big business advertising. Rather, it’s a collection of original photographs taken by hobbyists, but with a certain amount of public appeal.
Over 100 stores from Hokkaido to Kyushu have already included SNAP-SHOTs in their selection.
