Bio Atsushi Maeda is a professional photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. His interest in photography started in 2004 when he was still a university student. He was in charge of the stage lighting at the university and worked as a lighting assistant for a team that created TV adverts and promotion videos for music artists. His fascination of how light and shadow created a different perception in color, texture, form and ambience soon progressed to using the camera to capture a fragment of his imagination. He has been working as a professional photographer specializing in food and fine art.
