Mr. Hollands is truly one of a kind pastor, after I heard about how he became a pastor and his dramatic life, I wanted to do a portrait series about him.
Born 1951 in Osaka, Japan, Arthur Hollands went to USA when he was 20, when he became the national champion at an all American wrestling tournament, won a silver medal at Pan American championship, and came third at a national Judo championship. Baptised at 23, became a pastor and returned to Japan in 1983 for evangelism.
He has made cross marches once in Hawaii and twice in Korea and also in Japan.
Now he is walking across the United States starting March 2014 from Hawaii, moving on to California and finishing on the east coast.
