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.

For years I have dreamt of experiencing the cherry blossoms in Tokyo: Hanami as it’s called here (‘To see the flowers). Boy, it’s such a sight. The atmosphere of the crowd and the beauty of Tokyo, with its streets filled with sakuras, is breathtaking. Quite unique and hard to explain. Anyway, below are a few pictures I took on film, in diverse locations.
