2nd Place - Merit of Excellence
This is Blue Impulse, which belongs to the Japan Air Self-Defense Force. I'm always impressed with their commanding skills.
Biography: I was born in 1970 in Osaka, Japan.
I became interested in cameras when I was in high school. At that time, the goal was to shoot the Blue Impulse, an acrobatic flight team.
After that, I didn't shoot for a while, but when I was 30 I started shooting again. At that time, I was mainly shooting landscapes in color.
However, around 2018, I started taking monochrome photographs in earnest.
I was convinced that taking a work in black and white would more accurately represent the scenery I felt.
Since then, I have been shooting mainly Japanese landscapes and streets.
