Midori Chan, Photographer, Designer.
For Midori, Photography is not only a tool to record reality but an interpretation of a certain emotions. It is a world seen through the artist’s eyes at a certain given moment frozen in time. As a Designer, she sees her work as a tapestry in which each thread is weaved with her imagination and passion to transform her dreams into reality. Her feelings and memories are intertwined in her works and expressed through a mixture of colours and forms.
Midori's passion for travel and photography had led her to over 50 countries. She has found the beauty and uniqueness in each country she visited not only through the wonders of the land but the people who have touched her heart with a simple gesture of kindness. As a photographer, she loves to retain with her the joy and freshness of each moment through her arts and share the beauty she found with the world. Photography has helped her to record what she cannot express in words, through her camera, she could capture a fleeting impression in eternity and the beauty of this frozen moment in time is interpreted in the dream like quality of her work.
Midori lived in USA, Europe, Hong Kong, and currently resides in Japan. She attended Parson School of Design and received her MA, BA from Cornell University, and Syracuse University. In 2004, she started her own company, Lambiance Design and Multimedia and in 2013, Midori Media. Her works have won many awards and recognitions internationally including:
