Born in Wakkanai, Hokkaido in 1955. Driven by the question “what does happiness mean to people?”, Ohashi began visiting the Himalayas, Tibet, Pakistan and China’s Western Regions from 1984 and documented landscapes and members of local ethnic minorities over a period of twenty years. Ohashi began photographing vending machines throughout Japan in 2008 after having started to work as a commercial photographer. Eiji Ohashi’s main exhibitions so far include “Roadside Lights” at Galerie&co199 (Paris, 2017) and “Existence of” at Zen Foto Gallery (Tokyo, 2017).
