As a photographe he started in Tokyo 2010 is subject was people, city and ropes. 


As a photographer, my research is in a continuity with my work as a performer; it’s about human reality, what I perceive and project. The human trace/memory, our raw emotion. That which is hiding behind our narrative, our social mask. The intensity that helps us to revelate reveal an extraordinary version of ourselves but also the intimacy that all this research implied conveys. I believe it is from within the shadow, the negative space and the void we create, the we can inquiry look for honesty and some particular essence of humanity. That is why, I think many people have compared my work to the Japanese aesthetic Yugen.
