biography

Born in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan

Works and resides in Tokyo, Japan


Artist Statement:

For me photography is neither a way to record, nor a method of explanation of either things or phenomena.

Photography is a form of experimentation to create a new world through the lens while consciously working with the ambiguity of visual sensation, as well as colours, composition, and fluctuations of perspective. 

Things that exist in daily life or that can be found anywhere, these are so humble and casual. Therefore they tend to be considered as meaningless.

My desire is to make precious and special images out of these subjects. Extracting their beauty through the functions of my camera. Then transferring it to a two-dimensional print. Also random factors count a lot.

Sometimes this unpredictable result brings my photographs to a dimension that is far beyond what I had imagined.
