Portrait: 'Photographer' (Shinji Otani), Amsterdam, Januari 16th, 2008.
Education: Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam / Kyoto University of Art and Design

I learnt early that photography is not a medium that only can catch the visible but also the invisible. My focus went to the space in between objects and in between people. Behavior and ideas, hospitality to others are things that catch my interests and my heart. Consequently, I find a new way to understand these stories. To photograph these frictions in between people's understanding and meaning gives me the opportunity to show great beauty and preciousness of ordinary life.
