These images are from my first travel to Korea in June 2023. I visited three big cities in Korea: Seoul, Busan, and Inchon. Seoul, it was so intriguing that historical architecture and modern live together. Busan, especially the coastal area looks like a little Dubai. The Inchon Bridge was worth looking for taking a detour to a new city, rapidly glowing in the country.

As well as being a passionate photographer, Yoshihiko is also a professional sound designer in the very demanding video game industry. Waterfalls were his first obsession and found himself totally enamored with the surrealistic smooth flow caused by ND filters. He now finds himself in his most comfortable place in the black and white fine art architectural genre. In 2016, his panoramic long exposure bridge-city scape “The Land of Connections” have topped on many photo competitions, including one of the prestigious award, International photo award (IPA).
