About Michael Kistler
Michael Kistler is a Tokyo photographer specializing in fine art urban photography. Originally from Minneapolis, his passion for photography was sparked by a trip to Europe at age 18 and has since taken him to numerous cities in over 30 countries chasing new images. A signature element in his work is the connection of people to the city; he is constantly searching for and exploring unconventional perspectives and unique moments where people and the urban landscape collide, merge and co-exist.
In addition to having exhibited in Tokyo and London, Michael also offers urban photography courses and workshops and is co-founder of Finding Yourself in the Streets, a series of international street photography workshops that have been held in Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Beijing. He also runs his own clothing company called Urban X, a concept he based on the graphic elements within some of his street images.
