Takuho Abe, born as the fourth generation successor of photo studio since 1936, grew up surrounded by photos from a young age. However, what he was interested in was music. He wanted to be a musician in Tokyo, not the owner of the conservative rural photo studio in Tokushima. He grabbed a chance of debut, but withdrew from the band. It was because he felt cramped by the record company ‘s business priority policy.
The name takuho the parents gave to him means to pioneer his way and walk. He did not intend to be a owner of a photo studio in a rural town, but he did not intend to do cramped music activities within the framework of someone else. After that, he was a photographer at the age of 23, but he had to rebuild the family business he was tilting before doing creative activities. After eight years, when he opened a store in Osaka, he started taking pictures, it was not in a boring and beautiful rural town, Tokushima JAPAN.
