Born in Yamagata, Japan in 1951 and graduated from the Tokyo College of Photography in 1977.

His works are unique contact sheets taken with a half-frame camera in which individual frames come together to form a whole image on each sheet, expressing the invisible time and consciousness shared between himself and his subjects. He has also been exhibiting his ongoing Patrone series since 2000 using a different method in which he takes slivers of time and condenses them into a single restructured image.
