豊田 有希|Yuuki Toyoda

She was born in 1987 in Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture. She has been based in Minamata City, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan since 2015. She began her career in 2012. She shoots mainly in the areas around where she lives. She wants not only to see but also to get a feel of the cultural climate of the land and people’s lifestyle. She aims to express the state of land and people, as well as latent social problems such as human rights and discrimination at the same time.

Her major works include “Signs of life” (2016-), which follows the life of the mountain village and traces of Minamata disease. In July 2020, we launched the REBORN project to rescue negative films in areas damaged by heavy rains in southern Kyushu. After that, "Donation book REBORN" was made to donate the amount excluding sales expenses to recovery activities.
