Her viral photography writes another incredible chapter in the life of Nishimoto. After spending her first eight years of life in Brazil – her parents had moved across the world to teach agricultural skills to Brazilian farmers – Nishimoto and her family returned to Kumamoto, Japan.

Nishimoto later settled on becoming a beautician, and her father even established a salon at home where she could work. But the 20-something Nishimoto tired of the stylist’s lifestyle. Instead, she was intrigued by the career path that her brothers had chosen.
