Welcome. I'm Ray Yamamoto and I don't know how to pick a non-boring font.
My street photography is raw me.
I try to tell the simplest stories possible.
My first street photo book HOME AND AWAY is a meditation on how I feel in my 2 homes, Japan and America. Japan is my true home, yet when I visit I often feel like a foreigner, a visitor, a tourist. I've lived most of my life in the US and could call it home, yet I'm not a citizen, I don't claim this land, I always feel alienated.
I am Home and Away in both spaces. Sad but also comforting, depending on how you look at it.
My portrait work is collaborative, a work in progress.
