Ideology in Paradise/ hiroshi watanabe

i really enjoyed time with my new friend hiroshi watanabe. he is exactly what his images are: honest, witty and full of surprises. as hiroshi says in his statement:

"I go to places that captivate and intrigue me. I am interested in what humans do. I seek to capture people, traditions, and locales that first and foremost are of personal interest. I immerse myself with information on the places prior to leaving, but I try to avoid firm, preconceived ideas. I strive for both calculation and discovery in my work, keeping my mind open for surprises".
