“I’ve wanted to go to Japan ever since I was a child. Its culture, nature, and architecture – I always thought those were absolutely beautiful.

In 2018, I was finally able to fulfill my childhood dream and let myself get consumed by this marvelous country. I must admit when I stepped out of the Tokyo Train station I could not stop myself from tearing up because the desire that I have been holding for the past 20 years was finally within my grasp.

Dream World is a Street/Urban Photography series that acts as a personal journal during my stay. While I documented everything I saw and experienced, I used specific developing techniques with Color to represent the Emotional state I was fulfilling this Dream. The Dream World, the act of fulfilling my oldest desire and the magical experience that I will never forget.”
