Yosuke Terada

I was born in Japan, but spent my early childhood in Canada. Throughout my life, I lived in many different places both nationally and internationally. I took up photography to record my journey rather than to express myself. I love meeting new people, having conversations and sharing thoughts. Photographs preserve fresh memories and bring them back to life every time we see it. I use camera to capture what and how I see this world. I will keep visiting many different places and photographing in the right place at the right time.
