With the concept ” all girls have the hope to be cute”, she is going to exhibit photos where she posted online and exclusively for this exhibition.

She uses photography as a communication tool with the models and the girls. Being a woman herself, she understands deeply about women’s strong sense. She captures photos of models with their look as well as their instability of feeling crushed by pressure. That’s the beauty she sees in them.

The 3rd WCDRR was held in Sendai Miyagi Pref.
“The Sendai Committee UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction” was held Mar.14-18 in Sendai, the capital of Miyagi Pref. ,which is one of the major damaged areas of the Great east Japan earthquake on 3.11 2011.

The conference resolved a new policy of “Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030″ to strengthen international cooperation systems. The first (in Yokoham in 1994) and the second conference(in Kobe in 2005) were also held in Japan, which may imply that Japan is a significant “key contry” when it comes to considering disaster-prevention policies in a huge scope of international visions. Sendai is not only the capital of Miyagi but also the economic center of Tohoku region (Aomori, Akita,Iwate,Yamagata,Fukushima,and Miyagi) and one of the three major Tohoku festivals “Tanabata festival”(/Star festival) in held on July 7th every year which is quite popular.

At the 3.11 tragedy, Sendai was damaged especially its airport was, but now has miraculously recovered. At the conference the spirit and concept of “Omotenashi in Tohoku” (the warm Japanese style hospitality in the northeast region ) was referred to as well.(by Terry)
