the LETTER

My passion is photography. I want to show people something they wouldn't see otherwise. Through photography I, too, see things I wouldn't see otherwise.
I live in Tokyo, Japan so if you're around, let me know. Happy to meet people any time.
I'm working part-time at the Magnum Photos Tokyo office, which gives me more insight into the world of photography day by day. Love it.

P.S: I'm also honored to be the +Drink and Click™ Tokyo lead so come let's hang out! - check out more on the Google+ page or www.drinkandclick.com

One day, death will knock on your shoulder and tell you the party is over. This sucks. What stinks even more, though, is that you're the only one who has to leave - everyone else is still going to have a partylicious time.

This is, freely put, what some smart person I don't remember wrote about people's relationship with death.
Now, I'm not dead (yet), but this also pretty much summarizes the way I feel about leaving Japan after all these years... [ 217 more words. ]

Thanks +Martin Irwin :) Never thought that this could be the best photo I ever took, but I guess it's like picking your "best" child - glad you like it!

去る日
The day has come, tonight I'll leave Japan.
Last time crowded morning train, last time stranger falling asleep on my shoulder, last time...
Of course, even the heavens are crying (mostly into my shoes) ;)

Harajuku, where else? 😅
Taken on a G+ fashion photo walk with +Trey Ratcliff and +Vic Gundotra a couple years (?) ago.

By the way, have just tried the hashtag #flashback7188 thingy myself by actually clicking on the tag, and am surprised that hashtags can be useful sometimes beyond #hashtagsarecool #2moredaysinjapan and #omgwtfishappenin ! Oh, and #cooljapan ;)

Been doing (and am going to continue to!) share a photo or so a day from my past 6-7 years living in Japan. You can follow these photographs at hashtag #flashback7188
These photos all become sort of more meaningful to me as I move on to new adventures...

Today's #flashback7188
- one of the first photos I took in Japan, at Enoshima. They published it in the English language Asahi Shimbun newspaper alongside a little article I wrote about Japan. I'm sure the eager ones of you can still find it in the interwebs ;)

#flashback7188 from when I went to Germany for a couple of weeks holiday to get stuffed on pretzels and sausages... No, this is not Nara, Japan.

This is also the deer on the DM of my second exhibition with Rina Song.

Halfway through - waiting for my transfer in Istanbul while having a cup of coffee.
This is from the airplane - many many years ago ;) Hence another #flashback7188 - they're accumulating!

Sasanqua. Kobe, Japan.

I'm on the night bus from Kobe to Tokyo right now. Looking forward to the next time going to this beautiful city, whenever that may be :)

Today's #flashback7188 photo is of +Giovanni Piliarvu, who put me up these days in which I don't have a home, and who also is having his photography exhibition at +Island Gallery in Tokyo right now.
