ABOUT

I’m a contemporary photographer currently residing in Ventura, California. For over a decade now I have been visiting Japan and documenting different cities across the country. For the last few years I have been working on my Analog Japan Project. For this project I am using a Mamiya C330 medium format camera and a Nikon F3 35mm camera. In an attempt to capture how dense and layered, cities like Tokyo and Osaka can be, I have used in-camera double exposures, long exposures and window reflections. Much of the work (including studio work) reflects the influence of Japanese culture and science fiction and is distinguished by a dark, atmospheric quality that suggests a larger story behind each image.
