MITSUYUKI SHIBATA’S ROMANTIC, EMOTIONAL photographs have been embraced by the world of surfing and the world at large. He has published several books, from one of which – Saltwater Sky (Bueno Books) – these photos are taken. While Shibata has worked extensively in advertising, he has also contributed his eye to film-making. Living in Hayama, he remains a dedicated surfer to this day and continues to center his life and work on the sea.
