Born in Kyoto in 1951, Keiichi Tahara moved to France in 1971. He began his career as a photographer, captivated by the piercing light of Europe that is compared to the soft light of Japan.
In 1977, at the age of 26, he won the Grand Prix of the International Festival of Arles for his series Window, 1973-1981 which propels him to the forefront of the international scene.
Based in Paris until 2006, Tahara worked on projects for the French government in a wide range of genres such as photography, sculpture, installation and architecture under the theme of "light". He has organized numerous exhibitions in Japan and Europe.
He has received numerous awards, including the Kimura Ihei Photography Award, the Prix Nicéphore Nièpce, Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres de France, and the Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris.
