I was never really good with words.
So I discovered poetry in pictures. Stories emerge where lines meet and colors merge. Frame by frame, subjects reveal to me pieces of their personal narratives.
Avid lover of Japan’s unique lifestyle, I took my film camera and spent a year capturing the youth culture.
By shooting in analog format, I aspired to connect with my subjects in all of their subtleties. Thus, I learned more with less.
I found focus in the blurry.
Little did I know that this journey would deeply shape my identity as a photographer.
I hope that emotions can transcend through these images to inspire you.
Here are the stories they chose to tell.

I think for a lot of people, the mount Fuji is probably what best represent a memory of Japan. You can see Fuji-san from Tokyo, if you are lucky. And already from there (around 100km away), it stays there, impressive. But when you get close to it, there’s this weird feeling of awe and peace that embraces you. He’s beautiful. These shots were taken either from Kawaguchi, or Kamakura.
