I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Oh we can all relate to this, in big cities (I do :), it's always so moving to see how our muscles accept their vulnerability easier than we do. We should listen to our muscles better :) Great daily life shot, Hugo ~

Very good document, Hugo, I like very much the sense of tiredness of working people at the endo of the day.

Haha wonderful Hugo! Sights like this are common in Japan too but I'm never able to capture them. It seems the guy in the middle is the real star - what a wonderful expression.

Wonderful mood I feel here . These two are probably coming from different work, office and labor work . A young man looks very concerned about this tired , exhausted woman .
