JAPAN FACES AND PLACES
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.
