Hitomi continues working as a professional photographer in the commercial photography industry, but her main interest remains fine arts where she combines photography with calligraphy, print-making, and multi-media materials, like gold leaf, washi, wax, resin and collage.

Hitomi maintains an active career as an artist and commercial photographer in both tokyo and New York City.

Artist statement :

“As a fine art photographer, my priority is the human portrait. Humans evoke the strongest feeling and emotions. I’m attracted to my model’s energy. They can be a woman, man, child or elderly person. I’m drawn to my models because I see mutual parts in our personality & being. With each model I share something different. Sometimes it is dark, twisted, affectionate, childlike, innocent, sexual, angry, sad, brutal or bold. I don’t choose my models based on their essence. These elements of feeling and connection are beyond biological sex. In my art works there is no border or bias between men & women.
