photographer spotlight: hitoshi

first there was my love for polaroid and instant film. now I believe I even more in love with medium format photography. there is something about those square prints that pulls me in and captures my attention. today’s photographer, Hitoshi, comes from Kyoto, Japan and is uber talented. when I first stumbled upon his work, I was immediatly blown away. his care for life and the beauty of nature is wonderfully inspiring. see his flickr stream here or his personal webpage here. thanks Hitoshi, for inspiring us today!


what first sparked your interest in photography:
“Town” and “person” and “atmosphere” that saw when I went to Eastern Europe for the first time established my thought to my photograph.what was your first camera:
Olympus OM-2favorite thing to photograph:
“person” “the scenery that light comes in”favorite artist/photographer:
p0cket-paul / TommyOshima / Henri Cartier-Bressonmost memorable advice you’ve been given:
“Take light”advice you’d give starting or aspiring photographers:
It learns “handling of the natural light”, and it is to take in natural light.favorite color:
I like black and white and gray, a monotone color.if you could eat only one thing:
Sweet coffee.something you can’t live without:
I think that I cannot live without my important wife and daughter.on repeat from your headphones:
I always hear “CAKE“.what inspires you:
When I am able to meet a wonderful thing and person and when I was able to take their photograph.
When my daughter was able to look.

    yes, thank you both for the inspiration. i would consider myself a “pre-schooler” when it comes to photography and these posts are so helpful. i love the medium format square prints of these intimate photographs, too.
