Eduardo Fujii is a fine art photographer living on the Monterey Peninsula in California. At an early age, he demonstrated great interest in the arts. He started music lessons at the age of five followed by painting a few years later. It wasn't until late 2006, however, that he turned to photography as a form of artistic expression. Classical music and painting have been part of most of his life and have certainly contributed to the development of a lyrical sensibility that underlies his photography today. There is always a beautiful prelude playing on the back of his mind when photographing.
Eduardo draws inspiration from various talented local photographers and also famous painters like Mondrian, Picasso, Renoir, and Modigliani. His images have a painterly look and reflect his continual pursuit of beauty. He is very committed to photography as art and always leaves part of himself in every image he makes. He truly believes that every photograph is a self-portrait.
Eduardo has participated in gallery exhibitions at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado, the Center for Photographic Art and the Cherry Center for the Arts in Carmel, California and has received various awards including Spotlight Awards from B&W Magazine and Color Magazine, PX3 Prix de la Photographie, Professional Photographer Magazine, Monochrome Awards, and the International Color Awards. One of Eduardo's images was selected for the cover of Shadow & Light Magazine. Eduardo was awarded Photographer of the Year at the 12th Annual Black and White Spider Awards.
