Dai Ito is a fine art photographer based in Tokyo Japan.
In 2001, he gathered some of hisfriends and started an independent art animation team "6nin". His role at 6nin was producer director, and music composer for animation films.

He considers his photographs to be similar to films, without a cinematic timeline, with a silent soundtrack. Photographs can capture a fixed point in time in the real world, as a frame, and writing allows us to move freely, beyond time and space. The combination of these two can bring about unseen stories and time not experienced.
His past exhibitions include solo shows in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Berlin, Strasbourg.
