Practice and research:
I am a photographer, and I was born in Japan. My main interest is in documenting everyday lives and my photography projects often involve collaborations with local people.

My practice-based research explores ideas and methodologies around constructing the photographic image-making (i.e. portrait) and is also concerned with issues of archiving and display.
