#AgoraAwards2019 Instagram Contest Winner – Keiichi Nakamura

“Hi everyone! My name is Keiichi, but I go by Kiego. I am the third generation of males in my family with this name! Until high school, I was crazy about basketball and was not involved in photography at all. In Soho, New York, where I traveled for the first time at the age of 19, I touched the art of photography, and then started shooting.

After graduating from university, I got a job at a Japanese branch of a foreign company. From the age of 22 to 27, I moved to the New York branch, and I was fascinated by the foggy streets of hot water aside from the big city!

The photos I take and edit are based on this street-like atmosphere that I felt in New York at that time.  While my busy work schedule somewhat impeded my continued photography activities thanks to instagram in the last 3 years I have been able to sustain my photographic material and continue it to the present day.

Instagram is hence a really important asset for my work and through hashtags and contests like the #AgoraAwards2019 there are endless opportunities to get discovered and in this case even win money!

The news that I had won this Contest came as a huge surprise to me and I was so excited. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Agora team for selecting my work again. Thank you so much, it is a pleasure to be part of this community!”
