Seigo was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1972.
Given a camera at a young age, Seigo’s instant love of taking pictures earned him the role of family photographer.
His introduction to the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson during his high school years had a huge impact.
He learned that photographs originate from “The Decisive Moment,” as defined by Cartier-Bresson.
Seigo moved to the United States in 1988, and in 1994, he graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography.
In 1997, commissioned by Japanese companies and media, Seigo began taking photographs of Bassmaster, the most prestigious tournament trail in professional bass fishing.
He became one of the official photographers of B.A.S.S. in 2004 and has continued to cover the Bassmaster tournaments to date.
While photographing various cities and towns, large and small, across America, he was drawn to the culture of Route 66 and its place in America’s short history.
His interests are not limited to Route 66, however; Seigo constantly travels the country, looking through his lens, seeking to capture interesting frames of culture and scenery.
In his pictures Seigo likes to play with light and shadows… and he continues to explore new possibilities of using light and shadows for expression.
He currently resides in California.

アメリカの大小の街を取材する中、歴史の短い国でありながらもアメリカの文化を感じられるRoute 66の魅力にとりつかれる。
またRoute 66に限らず様々な文化や景色に足を運び、画を切り抜くべくファインダーを覗く。
写真とは光と影の遊び。Playing with light and shadows…
