I am a photographer living in Hokkaido, Japan.
I have built my life around photography over 10 years.
My hometown was Saitama Prefecture next to Tokyo and moved to Hokkaido in 2011 to take pictures.
Since then I have taken pictures of things surrounding me which is mainly landscapes.I create the work of the Ezo red fox now.The encounter with an Ezo red fox was not recent, but finally I have started to be attracted with it deeply. It resembles a cat more than a dog. Discovering all like Vertical pupil, textured tongue, face and front leg whisker, superb tree climbing, agile and elegant way of walking was a pleasant for me.
I felt because I could see my cat's simulacrum which used to be with me over 20years in the fox through a viewfinder.
