I started this self-portrait 'series01' project in order to explore more of myself by it.

Once working on it, I felt oddly relieved. 

I'm based in the Tokyo area, I love old hotels and classic style cafes and also love to collect vases.  I began photographing when I was a student and today I focus on self-portraits and portraits. I have published 7 zines and i'm also publishing 'AINE', the zine i'm is co-creating with my good friend Shiori Kusanagi.
