It’s been four month since the photo exhibition called “HARDWORK”.
I am currently working on a photo book with Suguru Osako for publishing in March 2022.
I spent a very unique 6 days before Tokyo 2021 as a photographer with Suguru Osako in Flagstaff US,, and this book is about tracing him and his process of art while there. It’s the final training camp before the biggest race that I would like to name “his daily life”. He confronted intensely hard training, and also relaxing time with his family. A seemingly juxtaposed conception. These things are definitely indispensable to express who Suguru Osako is. At this time, I would like to share with everyone these important moments in the photo book.
