I visit sensei twice a month. Sensei teaches me Shodo (calligraphy) and Sumie (ink painting). He also teaches me Japanese, albeit from a different generation. Sensei is 87 years old. As well as study together we check out galleries, go on bike rides and visit flea-markets.
Sensei shares my passion for ramen and udon noodles too. We often stop for food during a day out together. Sensei is more than just a teacher to me, he's slowly becoming a good friend.
This is an ongoing project that I started in the summer of 2016. For more images check out the full project over at my website.
English photographer living/shooting/working in Tokyo. I enjoy using both analogue and digital methods to make photographs.
