One smile at a time








As a child, I always enjoyed observing my surroundings. Watching people walk by, architecture, flowers, pretty or ugly, clean or messy, it didn't matter.

Later in life, I found myself falling in love with photojournalism.

I believe in capturing the moment "as is", finding beauty in everything that surrounds us. I'm attracted to very simple things, perhaps that's the true Japanese in me.
