    "Maq's stream is full of adventure, reflections, cheerful pictures. More importantly, the main reason why I keep lurking on his page on a regular basis is his personality - simply: what he does, and the soul revealed in the stories - and, yea, visually displayed in some of his reflection shots -

    Keep on shooting - and travelling

    "Maq is a friend...not a common friend...Maq is the artist that i admire, his quality is out of discussion. Maq has a great propension to share the wonderful subtle vision, his eyes are able to discover in the night the beauty of light and in the light the dark side of the luminous colours.
    Maq is my reference, the opposite of my (poor!) style, so i admire him.
    He is a magician.
    He is the brother in "light" that i have never had before.
    Many thanks, mate.
    Hope to hold your hand as soon as possible.
    That's all.

    "In normal life floorings aren't mirrors, houses are not built on a 45 degrees slope, in the streets there are persons not looking-thru entities... but in this weird stream of Makoto's shots everything could be absolutely common, and in such a normal way it is portrayed.
    He looks at the world with such a vivid creativity that he succeeded to create another reality, fully consistent in itself, and so more fascinating than the real one that you will be bound to come back here again."

    "He's the God of reflections, time and space so, open up your eyes, fasten your seat belt and grab your air sickness bag!

    His photostream would make you come back again and again to enjoy this amazing endless trip to the center of his life and the things he's in love with:

    His cities... their night lights and his bike!

    A great photographer of great elegance that has a great idea about what looks beautiful and pleasant to the eye.
    His also a very modest person with a great sense of humor.

    I am honored to be one of his contacts."

Maq's globetrotting and constant wanderlust are much like my own; I hope our paths cross again in this big world!"

    "maybemaq's photography conveys an absolutely simple yet brillant passion for life. His images are full of atmosphere without ever being kitschy, and they feel real despite their high aesthetic standards. Every piece is imaginative, sensitive, and inquisitive. Above all, his work is truly cosmopolitan and reflects globalisation far from any trace of superficiality. His photostream is like a book full of stories. I am always thrilled to see his latest additions."
