I don't like to shoot street performers, but I've been stalking this guy for over a year now. I usually take his photo. :D

I like all of your photography, it makes me wonder about your story, what brought you to Japan and all that.

Well, I cam here in 2007 as a student. I loved it, so I finished school and came back in 2008 to teach English. I've been doing that, plus a lot of freelance work, for 5 years. Recently I got a promotion to an assistant manager at one of our branches. So I will be focusing on that + photography of course! :D

Wow! Are you fluent in Japanese?

Not even close, haha! :D To be honest, for my first 4 years or so in Japan I barely studied. I kept thinking I would leave some day and I always put it off. Finally, I got my ass in gear a few months ago and now I'm getting much better. It's a long hard road to fluency. :D

Haha yeah I think that's what happens to most people who end up somewhere longer than expected, one day you realize you've been there for a long time and can hardly get your point across without sounding like a child! Keep working hard :)

Haha, after seeing your piece "Hooligans" I've been staring at the ground in all your shots and the curved bricklaying in this one really makes me happy. It makes it seem like he's in the middle of a pond and his music is causing ripples, and the lighting adds to the underwater sort of feel, as does the glassy reflections to the right. This piece has a mysterious feel to it; I like it!

Wow, I love that interpretation! It's a cool idea. :D Now that you mentioned it, it does kinda of look like he's just there and some kind of energy (his music) is emanating from him out into the night! It's great how different people can reinterpret a photo! Thanks! :D
