Our Insta-gran had no art background growing up until she finally joined a photography class that was taught by her own son Kazutami Nishimoto when she was 72 and eventually, she also learned how to use Photoshop as well.

In 2016, Kimiko published a photo book titled Hitorija-nakayo (You Are Not Alone) featuring her digital art photography collection, self-portraits, and messages as well.

Catching wide attention in Japan because of her happy and creative photos, she had her own exhibit late last year called Asobokane (Let’s Have Fun) at the Epson Imaging Gallery Epsite in Shinjuku Ward.

Kimiko also takes photos of objects around her house sometimes, aside from her iconic self-portraits that everybody enjoys.
