“I was born in Tokyo. I brought up my boyhood in Hokkaido, the north of Japan. In my twenties, I began to work a regular job, I bought Nikon reflex with zoom lens for travel and a few books of photography. I went to evening school of photography after my job everyday for the year and a half. I was interested in the lectures, especially for me, photo history and darkroom lesson using a black and white film. I often went to street my holiday every week for photo. I experienced an unpaid assistant of commercial photographer. This looks quite enough for me though it was just in a short period. That may be a valuable experience. I photograph for myself at present. Black & White has been fascinated with me until now.”
