My photographs are like Japanese paintings.

I feel that realism is a more Western style. Through my landscape photographs, I’d like to express emotions and spiritual feelings.

Contemporary theater, art and music stimulate the brain and liven people’s mood. But emotional art heals people and leads society towards harmony. So, I took the challenge to capture emotions with my camera.

Using only rational thinking when creating photography results in better attention to the detail—but there is a tendency to get bored. Working with feelings and looking for emotions is more relaxing and ultimately, more powerful.
