Profile

Tatsuro 達郎

I was born in Aichi prefecture (Toyota City), Japan.
From my childhood until high school I had loved playing baseball. And, I loved also drawing.
My first meeting with camera was at 12 years old.
It was a "Fuji Pet" what was presented to me in celebration of birthday by my father.
And until now I have trodden windingly on a long film road with camera as an amateur.
After I retired my Job In Japan, I relearnt photography, starting with the foundation.
And now again I embark on a professional.
My subjects cover a wide range of topics. They are all of events and existences surrounding myself.
Also they are everything I am fascinated with strong impression.
My expression with photography is free from one style, with many eyes, but basically it is marking my impression by light and time.
One could say that my style is a kind of Impressionism.
In addition, I love writing, drawing, and especially investigating about ancient history.

私は、日本の愛知県(豊田市)に生まれました。
幼少時代から高校まで、野球が好きで続けていました。
また、絵を描くことも大変好きでした。
私が初めてカメラを手にしたのは、12歳の時でした。
それは、父から誕生日のプレゼントで、買ってもらったフジペットでした。それ以来、趣味として、長い間フイルム写真の道を楽しんで歩んできました。
私は、日本での仕事を退職後、写真を基礎から勉強し直し、今、プロフェッショナルとして写真の道へ再び歩みだしたところです。

私が被写体とするものは、多方面にわたり、私を取り巻く全ての事象と存在です。
また、それは、私が魅了され、心に深く残こされたすべてであります。
私の写真表現は、一つにとらわれず、多眼的ですが、基本的には、その印象を光と時間によって印すことです。
私の写真表現のスタイルは、ある人に指摘されたように、いわゆる印象派と呼ばれる絵画のスタイルに近いかも知れません。
また、写真のほかに、私は、文章を書いたり、絵を描くことも好きです。さらに、昔から歴史が好きで、特に古代史を探究することが大変好きです。

My philosophy of Photography

I believe photography bases on the following essences.
One means Photography is truth or reality.
It is clearly shown by 写真-the word that photography is translated into Japanese. Because 写真-shashin means recording truth. On the other hand, also it is the fact that truth or reality is not only one. Because it is different from each eyes in each mind or the way of expression.
Another means Photography is a fossil marked by light and time.
Each image shows a page of history, and also shows the scenery in mind’s eyes of photographer.
In short, it means history.
Moreover, photograph is created by photographer’s emotion.
That is exactly why image never separate people, and so just Universal Language.

So, I have the following belief about Photography.
"My mind creates my image.
My mind creates my road.
Good image lives on forever in people’s heart."
