I’m Kazu and I live in New York City now; I was born and raised in a small town in Japan. I picked up a camera a couple of years ago, and since then I have loved photography.
I shoot pretty much everything. Most of the images that I share on my social media include people, but I really like all kinds of subjects. I shoot pretty much everything…whatever catches my eyes while walking on the streets.
Mostly New York City at the moment, but recently I’ve been looking for other places to shoot.
Everyday. I always have a camera with me. That’s funny because sometimes you walk 12 hours a day and you don’t see anything, but the next day you see interesting stuff right outside your apartment. You never know.
It’s just part of me.
I think photography is a beautiful thing. It’s your way of showing the world what you see. You can capture the moment, the emotion, the action, the memory. It gives you a whole lot of meaning with every picture you take. I take it seriously because those photos are living forever, unless you burn your negatives. They live longer than we do. Of course, I want to be a better photographer one day but the main reason I shoot everyday is that it is almost like proof of my existence. I’ve tried to capture as much as I can.
We’re not promised tomorrow.
