Okawa Village, Tosa County, Kochi Prefecture, Japan, 2007

He later decided to continue his studies in Europe at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gant (Belgium) where he turned to photography. He created Quintessence of Japan in 1983, an opus in which human infrastructures take root in nature.> Read more

In 1992, he received the Kimura Ihei award. Three years later, he was commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Arts of Chicago to photograph the United States and it is during this assignment that he captured his high angles shots of the Grand Coulee Dam in Washington State.

Toshio Shibata switched to color photography in the early 2000s. In 2009, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography put on an extensive retrospective of his work.
