Katsumi Saiki

Tokyo-based photographer

Photography is a drop of milk in coffee, or a spice.
Photography enriches the world; it mellows, familiarizes, gives depth and complexity. It allows us to connect with the world around us through the medium of the camera.
The world is a complex place, and there are innumerable ways of relating to it.
I do it by taking a step forward or a leap into the air, camera held high, by crouching low or finding something quirky to put in frame. By doing something a little different I can surprise the viewer; I can use images to say something about complex issues or just make a witty observation on the world around me. Taking pictures is my way of creating stories, of making sense of my world.
