    "I open his photostream as if opening gift--there's always a surprise. I love the range of his subjects: intense close-up portraits, airy florals, gritty urban scenes, unique rituals and ceremonies (complete with a note on social history, so it's educational, too!), exquisite details "cropped" out of, and implying, a bigger story, color and black-and-white--all meticulously shot, with reverence, and without sentimentality. While one can find inspiration throughout flickr, his work is especially engaging."

His love of people and his fine eye are evident in his photos which have brought pleasure to many. My particular favourites are the Harajuku Girls and the Faces of Nippon. I look forward to our paths crossing again soon!"

    "I found ajpscs image success rate to be notably outstanding. ajpscs ability to 'capture the moment' and feeling of 'what is Japan' is a joy to study. The ability to also create western perspectives of everyday Japan is especially unique, and makes the viewer (me) wonder if ajpscs eye is more than Japanese.

    For the would-be-traveller to Japan, these images create a highly motivational store of information. I recommend the slideshow mode for maximum jaw dropping effect.

    "From my point of view art is much more a way to be than a thing you do.
    Being an artist in my eyes means opening up to something bigger than yourself – call it trust in god, call it inspiration, call it chance or call it a poetical point of view.
    If a photographer derives his work from this kind of way to be you can see in his results.
    It makes the difference between being high technique artficial outcome or art.
    The way ajpscs photos touched me instantly, the way he’s catching the moment in the faces of passing strangers, in the sensibel details of flower fields or the high speed you can feel immediately watching his tokyo-rush-hour-in-rain-series or many other subjects, told me from first sight: he got it! - that’s art!"
