After graduating from a college of art, I started working for an advertising agency as a graphic designer. Then I have started a new career at an optical device manufacturer as a MarCom staff. Since then in parallel, I have been working on creating my own photo works for years. In addition, I have joined various types of solo and group exhibitions. Since I want to widen my activities as a photographer, I have recently started approaching to overseas photo markets. As the result so far, my artworks have got awarded in some photo contests and appeared in some web magazines in foreign countries. Furthermore, one of them is now stored in an art museum. Under the motto, ‘Contribute to the Society through Photograph’, I have been involved in a lot of volunteer activities in which I record and introduce people in Japanese traditional performing art groups and their performances in my neighboring areas.
