\\ Capturing \\// Vancouver //
My relationship with the city of Vancouver changed forever the day that one of my uncles, who had just retired from a career as a full-time photographer in Tokyo, gave me a Mamiya RB67 professional medium format camera. I immediately took it to the streets and became immersed in my genuine interest: people.
I happen to live in a city graced by immense multicultural diversity, and just walking around Vancouver constantly reminds me that this is the place where we can be who we truly are.
My camera seems to draw people’s interest and has made it easier for me to shoot genuine moments. The best mantra ever I have learned from this experience is dead simple: unique moments never come again. I truly look forward to continuing observing and capturing the fleetingly real moments that unfold before my lens.
