About Me

Hello. I am Nozomi. 

 

I was born and raised in an area surrounded by rice fields in Japan. I went to a high school in Norway. Now, I am based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

 

I am a self-taught photographer wishing to connect with people through photography. Photography has been helping my journey and self exploration, and I love to share such effects with people. I see so many possibilities in humans and surroundings through photography which I also love to share. Encouraged by my friends, colleagues, and family, I started to work on photography to share with more people in 2020. I started applying for photo contests in 2021. 

 

I am a registered yoga teacher through an internationally recognized Yoga Alliance, and have worked in health and wellness fields with athletes, children, youth, older adults, and people with disabilities in Edmonton. I have a Physical Education and Recreation Degree from University of Alberta. I came to Canada to learn about the relationship between our mind and body. I also came here to explore what I can do in this world. Interacting with people has been a fruitful experience which has been influencing my creativity.

​To me, photography and art are experience. Arts help viewers and artists become aware of our inner self. This lived experience shows us our true nature.

 

It brings me great joy if anyone gets some feelings or support for their journey through my photos. Even if it is One person in the world who enjoys my photo, it means the world to me.

I am energized by the sun, nature, animals, water, and genuine smiles. 

Thank you very much for being a part of this journey. Wishing you and your loved ones peaceful moments today.
