Born 1987

Lives in Aichi, Japan.

Forest Photographer based in the Japan

As an epileptic who suffers from loss of consciousness, I am unable to define my own existence without memory.
In such a situation, I had to ask myself the question that I have in the landscapes I photograph, "Is what I see and feel certain?" The method I used to clarify this question was to invert the negative and positive images.
As I searched for the definition of existence in the difference of scenes that emerge through the technique, landscapes that disappear as data, and image information that breaks down, the "impression" that was born through me was certainly there.
And it made me wonder, "What am I?" I am taking photographs because I want to know what I am.
