What is a photograph?
When I take photo, whatever the object is like landscape, people or flower, with my whole heart and put my heart and soul into it.
In Japanese, photos are called “Sha-shin(写真)”. “写” means to take a photo, “真” means sincerity, trying to capture the essence of the object.

What is Art?
In Japanese, Art is “Gei-Jyutsu(芸術)”. “芸” means mind, “術” means technique. Mind or “芸” uses the right brain. Technique or “術” uses the left brain.
I believe that Art is born when right brain and left brain are come together.
I believe that Art is born when the communication between Artist and viewer succeeds.
