Photographer / Wet Plate Photographer


Envisioning real subjects, people and landscapes vividly through original DIY photography techniques  


Alongside work inside Japan, PETA spent his 20s and 30s in America, Canada and Mexico alongside local people, capturing their daily lives while experiencing his own time abroad. PETA excels in improvisational methods, including the revival of primitive film development techniques, such as wet plate photography, and the creation of his own mobile photography studio. He also works on surreal and grandiose installations (and photography of them) as a member of art group MIRRORBOWLER. He designed the office interior and large-sized furniture at gradation.
