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.

Naka Meguro with Ayumi

Naka-Meguro is a trendy neighborhood located southwest of Shibuya. It has everything you want: food, shopping and sights. It’s also a station close to T-site, a crazy library. Anyway, can’t suggest you more to visit that area, along Daikanyama and Ebisu. Super lovely area! I walked there with Ayumi and took the opportunity of taking a few shots. Some of them are done with a half frame film camera, a regular 35m film camera and digital.

This is in the middle of T-site!

I love that area. Close to the rails, there is this block which has a few restaurant and shops and a roof with a view.
