Naoto Yoshida
Born in 1994

Having an interest in exploring other countries since he was little, he started travelling alone at 15 to South Korea, and soon to Brazil at 17.
After graduating high school, he worked at a foreign engineering company for three years before deciding on an indefinite solo trip in 2015. He was led to photography a year into his travels after meeting with Japanese photographers who were taking pictures abroad. Since then, he focuses on capturing the culture and smiles of the people unique to the places he travels to.
