He positioned the digitalization that occurred in the Heisei era as a great revolution in the history of photography, and said, “You can see it the moment you take a picture and send it to the world. The people who do this are either hobbyists or artists (lol).I'm going to do a lot of work, so when the era becomes digital, it will be digital.In the era, you have to take pictures with the camera of that era. ”, and this is also a way of thinking that is typical of pioneers. ”
