Profile

While working as a civil engineer, I also work as a photographer. I have started taking pictures of wild birds by DLSR since 2003. Also, I took many pictures in yosakoi dance festival and motor racing circuit. I had a private and group exhibition. I won many photography awards in photo contests. The disaster caused by the heavy rainfall across the Kanto region in 2015 led me to start a new photography project. I expressed the dam construction technology in my artworks. The disaster made me think deeply what we can do to coexist with nature and what I should do to maintain a high convenient life without destroying nature. Dams support our lives by controlling water, make our lives functional and comfortable. And we can’t forget people who involved dam construction. I re-realized they played an important part in our lives. Through my artworks, I want to hand down their technology to the next generations. Since 2012, I have joined SAMURAI FOTO. As I had a chance to be exposed international photo culture through the activities, the experience was a great help for me to make the artworks.
He has been trying to build a meaningful bridge with different countries and carries on today around the world.

Personal Statement

The more people’s life get comfortable, the more relationship between people and nature changes. Deforestation and using fossil fuels lead the global warming. The wildlife ecosystem changes and some of them become extinct. The climate changes dramatically as well. In 2015, the heavy rain caused severe flooding after river embankments collapsed in Kanto area. It caused damages then year after year. Droughts, on the other hand, also occur and it seems difficult to control water. Due to maintain our comfortable lives, we have to fight against the natural disasters and move toward the next step. Japan has many skillful engineers. With their efforts, we need to advance the development and maintain a fine balance with nature. We also need proper maintenance of structures and adjust them to the environment. It is necessary to cultivate human resources to manage, too. I’d like to show those engineers’ thoughts in my photographs.

This led to my encounter with photography.
