What I do at EYExplore

I plan and conduct workshops, my current one being Tokyo Old Town.

Where I explore

Shinjuku remains a favorite, along with Tokyo’s older, eastern areas, plus anywhere that’s a little on the forlorn side, or somewhat rough around the edges. The same goes for the rest of Japan, with the country’s many faded towns providing interesting destinations on regular trips out of the big city.

Why I love photography

Photography is a combination of ritual and therapy—a necessity that makes life better in a multitude of ways. It also allows me to seek out new bits of Tokyo, and perhaps more importantly, appreciate the beauty of both the fleeting, and the completely ordinary.
