About Ikuo Nakamura
Born in Akita Prefecture in 1945 and at the age of 20, Mr Ikuo Nakamura started diving and taking photographs underwater. At first, he worked as a technical magazine cameraman of Suichu Zoukei Centre and then became an independent photographer. Now he is a representative of Squall, a photography production, which specialises in the ocean. He energetically visits oceans in Japan and abroad and has published a lot of topical works. He has been boldly tackling some social themes such as the Bay of Tokyo, which is his lifework, Minamata Bay, Shiraho in Ishigaki Island (world famous for the coral sea), the wrecked ship Nachodka, Okushiri island and Isahaya Bay. He is also known as a social news photographer. His work is valued for not only the area of still photos, but also television commercials, drama film and hi-vision film. He is continuing to convey the charm of the ocean through various media such as exhibitions, workshops and lectures.
