ATOM is a Japanese photographer, born in 1980, based in Tokyo.
ATOM spent years travelling around the world to take pictures; he visited 64 countries in total and encountered many cultures and many people. The experience gained from the trip raised many questions for himself.
What does it mean to life, coexistence with nature, happiness and purpose of living for? And the fundamental question is, “Why am I born in Japan in this age?”
By leaving Japan, he reconsidered his homeland and pondered about living as a Japanese and a modern people. Conscious of his identity as a Japanese, he uses the motifs of symbols that symbolize Japan, takes a photo of the present age, and prints it on the most precious handmade Japanese paper in Japan. Using these media, ATOM decided to deliver the message to the world.
In today’s diverse world, ATOM hope that you will face yourself and think about the future through the work of ATOM.
ATOM has been active as a photographer in the world. His works have been published internationally in publication such as Washington Post(USA), My Modern Met(USA), Weather Channel(USA), 20minutos(Spain), incredibilia(Italy), 撮影日報(Hong Kong) and others. He also won many international awards.
ATOM will continue to experience many things, and explore and express the meaning of living in the present age as a Japanese.
