I am Daido Fireyama, a street photographer from Hong Kong. I like laughter. Therefore I enjoy capturing smiling faces in the street and it is a photography project which inspires me most. Our world may not seem good, yet it is not that bad either. I want to use my camera to remind everyone that there are still many people who are working hard and laughing hard. When you see my photos, I wish you can laugh with us together! (Even in difficult times)
I also like capturing street beauty. But the beauty I captured has no sexy dress or model body. I always wonder: what makes a great street photographer? Perhaps it is someone who could change insignificant beauty into a protagonist! I believe a natural smile is also a beauty.
My photography method is so simple. Ask yourself: what makes you to press the shutter? When you are walking down on the street, and if there is something which makes you to look at it more than once, then you should press the shutter for that. After taking lots of photos, you will learn how to listen and capture your heart. In 2017, I have taken more than 70,000 photos. I regard photography is not simply a holiday activity, but it can also become part of our life. I am trying to put photography into my life.
