These fireflies live quietly in the sacred space of a shrine. I watched as their lives danced wildly in order to pass them on to the next generation.
By incorporating the symbolic torii gates and halls of the shrine into the composition, I expressed the fact that Japanese culture has been handed down from ancient times.

Born in Japan, age 45.
I started taking photographs as a hobby 10 years ago.
I am happy to have people see my photos on SNS, so I mainly take photos of landscapes in Japan. This has led to a gradual increase in photography jobs.

I have been actively challenging overseas photo contests for several years now.
I would like to continue to freely take what I want to photograph.
