    Masaya Mizuno

They are members of a Japanese dance group. They paint their own bodies in gold and dance to express human emotions such as joy, suffering and sadness. I encountered their dance and I imagined Picasso's painting Guernica. I felt that there were people who were running around, people who were terrified ... as depicted in that painting. I chose these pictures with a wish for peace.

I was born in Aichi Prefecture, Japan and currently work in Tokyo, Japan as an advertising and book designer. Photography is not my main job, but I have worked in a photography studio and to this day I take freelance work. I specialize in photographing people in motion, whether it's in the performing arts or dance, regardless of location.
