Japanese Grandma Discovers Photography, Can’t Stop Taking Hilarious Self-Portraits
Kimiko Nishimoto didn't get into photography until she was 72 years old (she's 89 now). Her son was teaching a beginner's course and so she decided to enroll, unaware that she was about to awake a passion and a talent she never even knew she had. She instantly fell in love with photography and set about snapping various quirky and comical self-portraits. She had her first solo exhibition ten years later, at a local museum in her home town of Kumamoto, and now she's about to have her work exhibited in Tokyo.
