Shibuya had an early interest in music and films but eventually devoted himself to photography. His highly accomplished photographs, characterized by a tranquil atmosphere, quickly attracted attention and have frequently been used for the covers of books and CDs.
Among the emerging photographers of his generation, Shibuya has received exceptionally high praise for both the ephemerality and intensity of his landscape photographs and the peaceful presence and solitary dignity of his portraits. Regardless of the subject matter, he continues to explore the beauty and depth of photographic images.
