I am a photographer whose main focus is on the people and what’s happening in Japan today. Through my lens, I see the problems that Japanese society is facing and by documenting how people are coping and eventually solving their problems in their own way, I often find a unique “Japanese-ness”. Through this process of following and documenting people in certain environment, I aim to reveal what it is that is very unique about Japan and people who live there.
