"Even near urban areas, there is a thriving environment in the ocean." - Toru Kasuya

Foto Care in New York City is honored to present Hidden Beauty Near the Shore, a solo exhibition by Toru Kasuya, one of Japan's emerging stars in the field of marine life photography, and the recently announced Grand Prize Winner of the 6th Annual Nikkei National Geographic Photo Prize whose mission is to raise the profile of promising Japanese photographers globally. This marks Kasuya's first exhibition in the United States.

Hidden Beauty Near the Shore will present 23 photographs highlighting Kasuya's exquisite underwater photographs that reveal that even near urban areas, there is a thriving and diverse ecosystem in the sea that most humans never witness.

Join us for an evening of celebrating the diversity and beauty of marine life with underwater photographer Toru Kasuya's exhibition: "Hidden Beauty Near the Shore".

In 2005, he acquired his diving license, PADI Divemaster, at Cebu Island, the Philippines, and the following year he started pursuing underwater photography as a serious hobby depleting from 100 to 150 tanks annually. He left his day job in 2017 to work full-time as a professional photographer. His main diving location is Osezaki, Shizuoka Prefecture.
