I am a woman. No more and no less I live my life as it is thread by thread and I write tomorrow

on yesterday’s sheets: there’s no sound other than echo.

And I tire from the moon’s feminine cycle and my guitar falls ill string by string I am a woman, no more and no less!

I don‘t have a driving license, but I do have tinnitus.
I like outsiders, doggie dubbing, washed hands, people who wake up early and freedom.
I don‘t like waiting, deep water, motivational books, rhubarb, interviews about cooking and my legs.

Walter Shintani was born from Brazilian parents whom were 2nd generation Japanese emigrants to Brazil in the first half of the 20th century. Quickly after he was born in Brazil, his parents migrated to Mexico, where he grew up and most of his education took place. Even so he could never really fit into Mexico, since he was neither Brazilian nor Japanese nor Mexican. He studied photography in Escuela Activa de fotografía in Mexico City and after graduating he worked in the cinema industry as SFX assistant. He followed workshops at the ICP in New York City, Centro de la Imagen and Fundación Pedro Meyer and became and independent photographer. His interest in photography has had a few turns during his career. Starting with photojournalism, developing into independent documentary in both photography and video. Now video is his main medium and Shintani’s major interest is folk culture. His most recent body of work is a series of landscapes taken in Dubai where he lived for a year that can be seen as a reflection of his life there.
