in my last last post, i mentioned that i was very excited to be meeting one of the most famous photographers throughout Tokyo... well that special person was EIKI MORI!!
if you don't already know who he is, Eiki Mori is an extremely talented photographer in Tokyo and also very well known throughout the photography world, as he has many gallery exhibitions held all over! such as Japan, Taiwan, the UK, Austria, Greece, etc! and this year, he just released his highly anticipated photo-book, called Tokyo Boy Alone.
...well, i was extremely lucky to have the honor of not only meeting him, but also having a personal photoshoot with him!!
here is a cute little picture i took of him in my apartment. he was so kind and very professional. i am definitely not a model, but he was very helpful and patient with me during the photoshoot. he even gave me a copy of his book as a gift! and also a delicious cake for us to share! i am so very happy to have met a kind hearted friend, but also a famous photographer who i am such a huge fan of!
i can't wait to see how the photos come out! and he also said he maybe even put my photographs in his future shows and next book! but that is just maybe a nice idea only, ne ;-p
throughout my stay in Japan, my experience with him is definitely one of the main highlights of everything! i am still so excited and can't believe i met him! hahah
ps: ただいま！ i am back safe in Hawaii :-)
though, i really wish i was still in Japan... i don't want to be back here! hahah, but i have no money, so back to reality and work. sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night and still think i am in my Tokyo apartment :-( it's so confusing...
also, happy halloween!
