Mr Hosaka had an obsessive interest in anime, manga and role-playing games in childhood. As he grew older, he became dissatisfied with sitting in the receiving end of otaku culture and felt a strong wish to create something and express himself to the public. He thought that expression would be through writing, a career he started in college, but after the birth of daughter he changed his mind and picked up a camera. He started studying photography in search of his own expression.
Mr Hosaka’s work is about landscape of Tokyo under his favorite theme, “Shooting the city like reading a novel”. Which means shooting city landscape photographs by using HDRI (high dynamic range image) technique to show the full dynamic range (ratio of bright parts to dark ones) of Tokyo. City lights are a perfect artificial beauty in this modern age. It is always beautiful and impressive if Tokyo holds many power to lit lights.
