Roppongi Hills Arena

Satoshi Kuribayashi took photographs of giant towering insects on the pillars of Roppongi Hills Arena and presents a digest of these images. Images that highlight the world from an insect's point of view show us a different appearance of the earth we perceive as humans.

Satoshi Kuribayashi (Bioecology Photographer)
Born in 1939 and lives in Tabira-cho, Nagasaki Prefecture. He has independently developed photographic equipment such as the insect-eye camera "KURIVISION" combined with an ultra-deep close-up lens, and records the moment of biological ecology, focusing on insects. In 2006, he became the first Japanese to receive the Lennart Nilsson Award, which is called the Nobel Prize for scientific photography, and in 2008 he received the Medal with Purple Ribbon. He can be seen carrying a recently developed new KURIVISION and shooting on sunny days.
