Seiichi Furuya (古屋 誠一, Furuya Seiichi, born 1950) is a Japanese photographer.
As a student Furuya studied architecture and then spent two years at Tokyo College of Photography. In 1973 he left his studies and his native Japan and traveled, ending up, according to Arthuur Ollman in his book, The Model Wife, "a man in exile. He wears alienation like an obligation." In Austria he met and married Christine Gössler, who was to become the primary subject of his photography until her suicide in 1985. His last pictures of her are of her shoes, neatly placed by the window she had just jumped out of and her body, shot from the same window, on the ground, nine stories below.
