Originally, rather than a photographer I wanted to be a painter and a film director. I longed for a world where I could make real the images of fantasy that were in my head.
I studied design and CG at a vocational school, and by that time I was also taking photographs for reference, for myself. It was at this time as a student that I first encountered Mitsuaki Iwago’s work.
Impressed how he was able to capture ”a moment like fiction that exists in non-fiction” in one photo, I decided to go on to become a photographer myself.

The main subject of my photographic work is familiar scenery. I mainly take landscape photographs, but the subject does not have to be a particularly superb view.
My style is to use the camera to project my own image while interacting with the subject that I am attracted to.

Curiosity is the most important thing while shooting. What happens if you take a picture from here? When you face nature not only from your own perspective but also one from the perspective of insects and birds, you discover a landscape that is different from any scene that you could have imagined.
To me, the OM-D system, designed to be reliable any environment, is like a paintbrush to create a picture.
Fortunately, now that we are in an era where cameras are able to take high-quality video, the OM-D has also allowed me to realize my dream as a filmmaker.
It is my desire to continue deepening my view of the world with the OM-D system.
