二年前の今頃、ここで私の初個展「Amazing Moments」を開催しました。私は在廊中に出会った、足を痛めた老夫婦の言葉が今でも忘れられません。「私たちはこんな場所にはもう行けない。けどここに飾られた写真を見ているとまるで世界の旅をしているような気がして嬉しい」。



GRACE OF LIGHTとは、「光の恵み」という意味です。光のおかげで、私はたくさんの感動と出逢い、自分にとって光はまさに希望そのものでした。私が感動したその光(希望)をいつか目の見えない子供たちにも届け、この光溢れる美しい大自然をその目で見てもらえたらと思い、展示される作品を販売した利益の全額を、「空飛ぶ眼科病院」を運営する国際NPO組織Orbis(に寄付します。失明の恐れのある、子供たちの目の治療に少しでも役に立てられたら嬉しいです。

Life is a journey and an adventure.

In the four years since I began photography, I have chased after the beauty of light as it envelops the world creating miraculous moments.

Around two years ago, I had my first solo exhibition, Amazing Moments, here in this place. I can never forget the words of an elderly couple I met then. They said, “We can never go to such places anymore. But looking at these photos, it’s as if we’re traveling the world.”

This renewed my desire to go around the world to capture beautiful landscapes with my lens for those who have never been or who cannot go to these places. Their words keep me going and motivate me to go forward into the unknown—no matter how far, how cold, or how difficult it may be.

In this exhibition, I want to show how light produces beautiful landscapes around the world. Enjoy walking through my two years of travel since the last solo exhibition. Explore the southern islands of New Zealand, Arizona (USA), Lake Baikal (Russia), Mt. Bromo (Indonesia), the Dolomites and Tuscany (Italy), Norway, Iceland, and Xinjiang Uygur (China).

GRACE OF LIGHT is about the blessings light gives. Because of this light, I’ve been inspired and have had many significant encounters. Light is hope for me. And, my desire is that this light (hope) can be shared with visually impaired children, so that they too can experience the radiant beauty of nature with their own eyes. With this hope, I will donate all profits from works sold in this exhibition to the international non-profit Orbis (, which operates the “Flying Eye Hospital.” It would be a privilege to be able to contribute to the treatment of these children.
