Who is Tatsuo Suzuki?Tatsuo Suzuki is a Japanese street photographer who started shooting in 2008 while he worked full time as a businessman. He started shooting after work and at the weekends. His focus on shooting people comes from his self professed fascination with people and lead to his style of getting close and interacting. He also references his use of Black and white due to the fact that he believes it helps to show passion and emotion better. He mixes both shooting with and without permission though from the looks of things the majority of his work is without permission. Some of the personal inspiration I take from Tatsuo is how close and personal he gets with his photos, as well as his focus on emotion, feelings and passion in his subject as well as his love for his subjects.
My photos are assets in the past. I would like to take better shots today than yesterday, and better ones tomorrow than today.Click To Tweet I walk around through the streets, if I find charmed subjects, I just shoot. Sometimes I talk to them to shoot their portraits, sometimes no talking, just street snap.Click To Tweet I only shoot objects I like when I find them. I follow my own instincts. I do not want to copy someone else’s style.Click To Tweet I don’t know much about the theory of the art. I only take pictures every day of my life.Click To Tweet
