Early in the morning in the winter when the temperature was below 20 degrees below zero, I met a deer. I remember being very moved as I realized the meaning of life in front of a deer breathing white breath against the morning sun. I created this silhouette photograph to draw the viewer into this world of silence.

I am a wildlife and nature photographer in Japan. Focusing on wildlife and its surroundings, I try to establish them not only as beautiful but also as more sophisticated works of art. My policy is to combine living and art. My photographs have been exhibited in museums and galleries, and in recent years I have been challenging international photography awards in order to achieve even greater heights. I continue my creative work with respect for nature and wildlife and gratitude to my family and friends who support me.
