Yasuhisa Ishii

Yasuhisa Ishii discovered his passion for photography in 2009 with a Leica M8. To master the art of using a camera to create wonderful works of art, this man has taken a different path to explore his passion.

Inspired and living by a motto to understand others, Yasuhisa believes that we can be better once we understand another person. Our world is the home for people of various cultures, customs, beliefs and roles, although the advancement of technology has brought us closer, invisible walls are formed. We often categorise and judge others by history, nationality, skin colour, religion, language, and fail to realise that we are indeed one species that are living on the same planet.

“We can judge everything when seen with our eyes, not by Google. Understanding others is one way to recognize who I am, so I try it again and again.”
