About Photographer

I was born in 1977 in Onagawa, Miyagi and now reside in Zushi, Kanagawa. I studied at Nihon University, College of Art Department of Photography. I strive to express the dignity of man through photographs. Ever since March 11th, 2011, I have pondered on the dignity of man. What made me reflect this theme was the death of my parents and the destruction of my hometown by the tsunami.
