This is for the GR blog theme “Macro(Part 2)” of track back project. As you know, the Ricoh GR is very nice for shooting macro, because that makes beautiful out-of-focus gradation, of course I like very much. Recently, I heard from my friend painter, "This out-of-focus gradation is similar to the watercolor painting by a paint brush". After I have got this camera, I am glad to take photographs, and always with me.
I am interested in documenting and introducing the world to traditional Japanese culture. My main motif are the Japanese traditional festival and the environment. The characteristic of my works are simplification of the subject, exaggerated perspective, the color control with a feature, and that is to use as reference the characteristics of Ukiyo-e and I have named to "Digital Ukiyo-e(Registered trademark)". I began photographing at the age of 13 and belongs to The Photographic Society of Japan.
