About Yuta Kato

As a journalist/documentary photographer I started a project “HAZIME-MASHITE” which is talking with people on the street, learning about their lives and publishing pictures and stories. I’ve been doing this for 5 years, and I could published my firs book『HAZIME-MASHITE』 in 2016, Kobe, Japan, and I got a scholarship from Japanese Government Organization "TOBITATE"  for continuing this project and learning Photography in art school, Vancouver, 2017-2018.

After I conversed with over 3000 strangers on the street and took portraits of them, I realized  I am deeply passionate about the power of Visual storytelling through Photographs.

For me, Photography is all about people. Camera is a tool for communication and connection, and pictures are my best friend for learning about one another.
