My personal work has always driven me to explore Japan on a micro-level. Focusing on the lesser-known aspects of Japan or even the non-typical looks of Japan have transformed my own relationship with Japan. I, too, was amazed by the historic richness juxtaposed with the futuristic moods of Tokyo and Osaka. But I wish to learn more and show more. Using my sense of storytelling I hope to showcase Japan’s hidden stories on a wider scale.
Using a typological approach to my work, I enjoy setting my subjects in a homogenous setting while allowing themselves to be seen unapologetically as they are. This is a similar approach I enjoy with many of my corporate and business headshots. Homogenous, clean, minimalistic yet unique.
I forward to speaking to you as a future photographer for your business needs or even as a collaborator.
