Motohiro Takeda (b. 1982, Japan) lives in New York, USA. His forte lies in camera-less photography. During his studies at Parsons The New School For Design, he became fascinated by the camera obscura and the idea of being inside the camera. He transformed his bedroom into a big camera obscura and thus created large-sized photographic works. Takeda's work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at the Houston Center for Photography (Houston, TX), Daniel Cooney Fine Art, the New York Photo Festival (both in NYC), and at venues across Spain. His solo exhibition of River was presented at Mapamundistas 2010 in Pamplona, Spain in 2010. Takeda was the recipient of Tierney Fellowship Grant in 2008 and his work has appeared in PDN Magazine and Conveyor Magazine, among other publications. In 2015, he was awarded an AIR Residency at the Centre for Photography in Woodstock.
