SHIMIZU KEN (born in Kanagawa, Japan) lives and works in Japan.
His work questions the widely accepted recognition and concept towards photography. Shimizu’s works, which include photography, videos, texts, and installations open up the possibility to consider the medium as indefinite objects becalled "photograph". 
Shimizu graduated from Royal Melbourne Institute of technology (BA Photography). He recently completed a master’s program in fine arts at Tokyo University of the Arts after studying abroad as an exchange student at The University of Fine Arts Muenster (Germany) from 2022.  

SHIMIZU KENの作品は写真の性質や概念に疑問を投げかける。写真、ビデオ、テキスト、インスタレーションなどを用いた作品は、広く普及した写真を「写真」と呼ばれる不明瞭な対象として考察することを可能にするものである。
