HELLO KYUSHU x GOODBYE KYUSHU

A Photography Road-Trip through Kyushu Prefecture (Photobook)

In Summer 2022 I went on a week long Raod-Trip through Kyushu Prefecture in Japan with fellow Photographer and good friend Alex Munoz. We were both hooked on the idea of photographing something quiet and totally different from the chaos and spontaneity we usually find ourselves in when we do Street Photography. This was a journey do rediscover our photography and see how we would work in the countryside and in nature. In July 2022, Japan was also still very much in the middle of the Covid Pandemic and had not opened its boarders for foreigners yet. That meant that there were no foreign tourists to be found and less people outside in general. Both of us also became parents fairly recently and we felt we needed to spend some time alone, away from the current world state and personal life and do something creative again. So in a way it is about two young dads on the road reflecting upon life via photography. We chose to explore Kyushu because Alex lived in Fukuoka (which is the biggest city in Kyushu) for 8 years and has now moved to Tokyo. This is Alex's farewell project (therefore "GOODBYE KYUSHU") and it is my first experience in the countryside of Kyushu (therefore I am saying "HELLO KYUSHU"). This project was made into a 126 page long photobook that is now available for purchase.
