I love the way you show all the different faces of japan. I like the details shots as well. I voted for you, if you have a minute, check out my book Woman and vote for it if you like it.

You've put together a really beautiful book. I've never been to Japan but I could feel the emotion of each photo tell me a story. Your cover already starts the story off for us--I think its great how your photos are able to do that without excessive embellishments. Your bio is also impressive! You have my vote--and I wish you all the best!
