Born 1976 in Japan.
Studied Photography at San Francisco Art Institute with Linda Connor.
Now, working as a freelance photographer in Tokyo.
All works are made with 8x10" camera, Gelatin Silver Print.
These images are from on-going series "alchemist's dream" that is trying to cross the boundary between real and imaginary.
No manipulation is done because I want these images to exist for real.
Showing works internationally in solo/group exhibitions.
