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.

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."
