Freelance photographer.
Graduated from the Nihon Photography Institute in Tokyo in 2009.
Literature and cultural studies at Duesseldorf University in Germany (M.A. in 2005), Anglia University in Cambridge (UK) and as research student at Waseda University in Tokyo (Japan).
My photography is between social documentary and metaphorical photography, exploring the beauty and strangeness of everyday moments and everyday objects, the ambiguous, when reality seems twisted and something out of the ordinary.
