alex watanabe
Current Residence: tokyo, japan
Favourite genre of music: Pop
Operating System: gentoo
MP3 player of choice: amarok
Shell of choice: gnome+beryl
Personal Quote: The truth is that many people set rules to keep from making decisions.
In the past few years I've:

1. Had a baby (now 3 years old!)
2. Got married
3. Graduated from Waseda
4. Started a 3.5 year master's degree (Architecture) at University of Michigan
5. Sold the Hasselblad
6. Bought and sold a few 4x5 setups (Sinar P, Arca Swiss f-line metric)
7. Bought and sold a Leica M3

In the past two weeks I sold all the film equipment and bought a 5d mk ii (I know the mk iii is coming out but I didnt want to spend 3.5k on a body... we'll see) and 2 lenses: 24mm ts-e II L and 85mm f/1.2L II.

Felt sad to let the film stuff go but with baby and life I just didn't have time for it anymore, in the past three years I took about ten photos with the film equipment so I thought it was time to move on.

I am re-uploading my best work and some new stuff to this site: if any of you are there.

In the next 2 months I will be graduating! Will probably be moving back to Tokyo for work, excited to be back in the city again...

Alex, do you still take pictures? If so do you put them on the internet? If so, where?

It would grace me with light greater than that captured on the film to see them.
