In my mind's eye, the crater of Mt. Mihara is all green with light pouring down through the clouds, reminding us that the earth is alive and breathing. Photo/Edit:Y.Aoki Music:"Self Portrait" R. Sakamoto
The sky as seen from a park near Haneda Airport. The sky is separated into two parts by a blue pole. We like to create national borders and boundaries, but we can't actually touch them. This beautiful blue pole is a part of the civilization that we have built up, and they are essential to our world.

We should keep in our minds
the feeling of flying somewhere.
For creating the society based on the mutual respects,
I appeal this image, with a consent by people for racial issues.

The horizon in a scene of a film can evoke many emotions, and can bring people closer together. Even the farthest and most foreign locations can enable us to empathize and understand different cultures and individuals. By seeing the horizon behind the actor, the viewer can realize that we humans live in the same world. Films helped me to feel the beauty of human lives. My creative endeavor was started by my father’s camera which helped me capture the world thorough my travels. Since then, I have met various types of people through the lens of my camera. I obtain a new vision of live and take inspiration every time I take human portraits. These creative travels have certainly contributed to my skill of storytelling. Through my personal experience as a photographer, painter and writer, I have gained a desire to integrate these creative skills in my work. I would like to collaborate with people from all over the world and professionals.
