About me

I have lived in Kyoto, Japan from 1996 and taught IT Tech in University. In weekend I walk and take photos around Kyoto, Nara and Osaka.

My favorite themes are landscape with spiritual feeling and old Japanese culture. I am influenced with Atget, Robert Adams, Josef Sudek, Ikko Narahara and Tomatsu Syomei.

I use old film cameras such as Zeiss Ikon Contax, Hasselblad SWC and 500C/M, Veriwide 100 and Rolleiflex because I can take photos with all my heart.

The followings ara my photo gallarys. It's very happy for me that you leave any comments in English.

    Hello Hiroshi,

    Hi Mr Hiroshi.
    I have seen your gallery and i liked it vey much. You have a great eye, and those rythms in your composition with the lines that you discovered through the light on the surfaces and its shadows are splendid.
    I´m an architect too, I'm from Medelín, and about the present you'll give us, i hope it will be as good as your photography. In the very end, isn't architecture a secuence of photographies through which ones we walk
  • Michael Albat 07/02/2006 15:07

    I think, I should take some hours to see your pictures...
