I was born and grew up on the edge of Tokyo in Japan and I worked at 10BAN Studio in Tokyo.
In 2006, I began my freelance career in London.
My personal projects have focused on marginalized communities and creative tribes. In "Golden Age", I worked with a community centre for the elderly in London, where I photographed senior women in costume, makeup, and set reproductions of iconic film scenes.
"Bosozoku" documented young motorcycle gangs in suburban Tokyo; a photo from this series was a KLPA finalist in 2013.
I also have worked on a collaborative project with a writer Yuka Igarashi "Migrant Mum London" and I photographed migrated mothers from all over the world; the series has been selected for Picturing the World Family / FIER Institute.
After 2011 Tohoku quake in Japan, I have worked on a project called Nesting, which has been selected for the 2013 Grand Prix Juror Awards of Merit in the International Fine Art Photography competition and shortlisted for Kontinent Award 2013.
Currently I have been working on a book project with artists and performers in Lapland.
