Shōgo Misawa

Based in Tokyo, Shōgo Misawa has made the city his playground. Originally a jewelry designer, it was when Shōgo first started shooting his motorcycle in different locales around the city that he discovered his passion for photography. Over time, his vision for his work has changed, and he now finds himself inspired by the people and city scenes he encounters during his outings and tries to capture the magic of what he sees in his fashion, portraiture, and street photography.

When shooting, Shōgo takes time to notice the range of moods, expressions, and emotions he encounters in a particular scene. He tries to capture the drama he sees in the people and places he shoots, and aspires to maximize that drama through his editing. He reveals that Instagram has become an essential tool in expressing himself, allowing him to share freely and for fun while simultaneously inspiring him for his next photoshoot. Shōgo’s work is featured in Trope Hong Kong, the third volume in the Trope City Editions series, which celebrates the juxtaposition of colorful chaos and architectural order of this iconic, constantly changing city.

Shōgo's Prints

“My favorite part of shooting in Tokyo is the constantly evolving cityscape and people. I seek out the old and the new in Tokyo, and I try to capture those spaces as well as the lives of the people who come and go within them.”
