Wanderers that started 18 years ago are not going to end now.
I have continued photo shooting Landscape, life scenery and people of the land I met on my journey that countes over 5years in total. A meeting in a lifetime, A momentary expression, atmosphere in ceremonies and living scene are captured as travel record. The world is filled with great diversity, its diversity is rapidly lost.
20 yeas ago, 10 years ago, present, after 10 years the appearance, nature and culture of the world wil be very different. Architecture is a part of them. and, it is going to lose its diversity.
there are not much direct imput from travel to architecture design. but, experience through the diversity will connects travel and architecuture design indirectly. Because everything is connected by people's lives.
A record of the journey of the architect who traveled the world for more than 5 years, 154 countries.
'GRAN TURISTA' keeps records of overland trip from Asia to Africa and Africa overland circuit trip.
‘The hometown of mankind’ Africa is still treated like single country for many people, but a continent full of diversity, with more than 1 billion people living. Among the many difficulties and little information, the joy of traveling is a sense of satisfaction that you can not taste in your everyday life.
I would be pleased if I could share these joy and satisfaction with many people.
The journey is always anxiety and curiosity collide with each other, and only when a little curiosity wins can go forward.
