Born in 1981 in Tokyo, Japan. Starting from the invention of the technique, my method produces a magical sense of humor. The allegory of illusion, this photographic philosophy is my guiding principle. Shirai was nominated for the TOKYO FRONTLINE PHOTO AWARD 2015, and selected as a finalist in the 16th 1_WALL Photography Exhibition in 2017. His recent exhibitions include "Haruyuki Shirai Solo Exhibition 'DORONKEI,'" Kanagawa Prefectural Lake Sagami-ko Exchange Center（Kanagawa, 2014）,"TOKYO FRONT LINE PHOTO AWARD NEW VISIONS #02," G/P gallery Shinonome (TOKYO, 2016), "Doron | Cale ," FIELD SEWING TOKYO / Cale (Tokyo, 2017), "16th Photograph '1_wall'," Guardian Garden（Tokyo, 2017）.
