The global award in photography and sustainability

Naoya Hatakeyama

Hatakeyama’s photographic works examine, in a serial manner, the city; its past, present and future. Experimenting formally, Hatakeyama utilises the vocabulary of photography to reflect, more generally, upon the relationship between humans and their environment.
