Most selfies are so same-same-same they're lame, and on the other end of the spectrum you've got one too many "artists" going crazy with self portraiture in the studio, creating selfies so avant garde they're boringly artsy.
What the world needs now are more self portrait artists like 89-year-old photographer Kimiko Nishimoto, artists who come up with creative and memorable self portraits that stick in the viewer's mind and make a lasting impression.
Kimiko has been shooting her own unique and endearing brand of self portraits for the last 17 years, taking up photography at 72 after attending a beginner's course taught by her son.
Ten years later she had her first solo exhibition at a local museum in her hometown of Kumamoto, and now her latest exhibition "Asobokane" (Let's Play) will be showing at Tokyo's Epson epsite imaging gallery from December 15th, 2017 to January 18, 2018. Cheers Kimiko!
