A Japanese photographer, currently based in Tokyo.
I was never into photography until one November day in 1999 I picked up my father’s camera and set off on a two year journey from Japan through Asia to Europe via land. I set out without any knowledge of photography and just kept on taking photographs, which soon became a significant communication tool for me since I didn’t speak much of the local languages as I traveled through many different countries.
Although this extraordinary journey experience triggered my interest in photography, I don’t consider myself just as a travel photographer.
The journey led me to London where I pursued photography at a higher level.
I believe that photography is absolutely limit-free and there is neither right nor wrong, and also that a strong photographic image has a hint(s) of these three issues, Politics, Religion or Sex.
