George Nobechi is a Japanese/Canadian Fine Art and Documentary Photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. His bi-cultural upbringing has influenced his vision that simultaneously makes him an insider and outsider to both Western and Eastern cultures. His contemplative work is often described as depicting a warm feeling of humanity.

Nobechi launched the inaugural Santa Fe Workshops programs in Asia before moving on in 2017 to start his own initiative, Nobechi Creative, which produces workshops and tours in Japan, as well as exhibitions, artist talks, community events, and major photo projects. Through Nobechi Creative, he has collaborated with artists such as Jamey Stillings on his renewable energy project "Changing Perspectives, Japan," Sam Abell on his retrospective exhibition "Hagi, 1980," as well as Arthur Meyerson and Greg Gorman.

Nobechi currently resides in Tokyo, where he is focused on creating projects related to the human condition in rapidly-changing Japan.
