Floris

Monday, December 5th, 2022

“I’m thankful to have parents who are open minded, and listened to what I was feeling when I was young.”

-Floris, age 22, 2022

Floris is a young adult living in the Netherlands. He began transitioning to the gender he identified with when he was four-years-old.

This is the second portrait I photographed of Floris for my portrait project Embrace. The first portrait, photographed in 2016, was posted yesterday. Embrace is a long term project which explores the lives of transgender and gender non-binary youth, adults and elderly from different parts of the world. Embrace was exhibited at Gallery ef in Tokyo and FotoForum Dresden during 2020. I’m hoping to exhibit the project again in the near future.

“I live a normal life just like any other person, except mine has an extra chapter.”

From Above at Gallery ef

Thursday, November 4th, 2021

..September 2021… …Tokyo…

Setsuko Thurlow

Wednesday, July 7th, 2021

Today is the 4th anniversary of the Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).   On January 22nd (TPNW) it was enacted as international law.  Before this treaty nuclear weapons were the only weapons of mass destruction not banned by international law. 

Mrs. Setsuko Thurlow fought her entire life to see this treaty become reality.  I began photographing Mrs. Thurlow in 2011. From the moment we met her determination to fight for the abolition of nuclear weapons was evident.  She was 13 years old when the atomic bomb destroyed Hiroshima. 

 “When I sit down to write down my recollections of that time, I have to brace myself to confront my memories of Hiroshima.

It is exceedingly painful to do this because I become overwhelmed by my memories of grotesque and massive destruction and death.” -Setsuko Thurlow

Everyday I think about the survivors I met in Nagasaki and Hiroshima.  Most have passed but their memory lives on when the treaty banning nuclear weapons arrives.


Mrs. Thurlow’s portrait is part of my project, From Above, which is a collection portraits and reminiscences of atomic bomb survivors and fire bombing survivors from the Second World War.  It will be exhibited at Gallery ef in Tokyo on September 1st-12th. 

Hiroo Fujima

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021

“I poured the water I was carrying, over my head then poured the water into my hand and put my hand to my lips.  We helped each other and endured the suffocation.  Gradually, the burning heat had gone.

-Hiroo Fujima, Tokyo firebombing survivor

On the night of March 10th, 1945 Tokyo was pummeled into ash. The men, women and children in one of the world’s largest cities, crumbled under a calculated reign of fire.  More civilians died that night in Tokyo than both atomic bombings combined.

This portrait is a part of my From Above project which featured portraits of atomic bomb and firebombing survivors from WWII. My limited edition book is available at https://www.photoeye.com/bookstore/citation.cfm?catalog=I1040&i=&i2=

A small selection of From Above is being exhibited at Gallery èf in Tokyo to commemorate the people who perished in the destruction of Tokyo. The exhibition is open until March 10th.
