In 2012 only 3 days before her 28th birthday, Erika Fujiwara was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is now what’s commonly referred to as a "cancer survivor", trying to live a normal existence despite the great threat.Erika is working on a project: creating a photo studio to offer other cancer survivors a professional photo shooting experience to help shine light on the beauty of others.Always smiling, focused and enjoying the present, spending time with her has taught me a lot of valuable lessons.Erika, I’ll do my best to support you in your project!

Born and raised in France. Moved to Japan about 10 years ago where I’m working as a photographer/cameraman.
