JAPAN FACES AND PLACES
Project info

I was a Cinematographer, a Director of Photography, for 30 years.

I shot many projects including over 40 movies and TV dramas.

I learnt a great deal about filmmaking and its tools.

I apply this learning to my stills photography.

I tell stories.

I use the tools of the cinema in my photography.

Structure, rhythm, establishing shots, close-ups, montage, dissolves, subtitles, eye-lines, soft focus, and super imposition.

These six images use these tools and reflect a long visit to Japan.

They combine contemporary photography with traditional Japanese forms and storytelling.
