Concept:
I admired my grandfather as I watched him take photos and aspired to become a photographer like him. As far back as I can remember, I have held a camera in my hand and photographed whatever held my interest at the time. While I was living abroad, I developed a deep appreciation for the natural environment of Japan and its mystical beauty. I began to listen to the stories and memories that lay within. I think if I could overcome the boundary between the world we can see and that which we cannot, I would take a photo of it.
