For all KOYAMA’s life, there were nothing related to art. He started taking photographs after being enrolled in the College of Arts of Nihon University. As he has never touched a camera in his life, he was faced with a problem of learning what art is and struggled in expressing himself in his work.
He loved traveling since he was a student. He would take photos of the landscape on his trips as he pleased. The extraordinary view that has touched him on his trips made him curious of how to express those moments as they were captured in his memory. With his curiosity and exploration, he found himself interested in the HDR effect of the special composite photographs.
As a child, KOYAMA was interest in the video games and fantasy films that had a beautiful outlook on life. Inspired by his childhood memory, his aesthetic feeling appear in his works. As KOYAMA states: “Photos are not to be thought, but to be seen”, as Christmas comes only once a year, his work expresses the transient and beautiful worldview withHDR composite photograph.KOYAMA did not desire to take documentary photos; he always took photographs with questions of why the subject was taken, and what he felt at the time. His work is a reproduction of what was shown in his heart on the moment he captured the views on his trips. KOYAMA’s traveling photographs are a true documentary of himself.
