Masao Katagami is engaged in photography. Currently residing in New York City. He has always had a keen interest in world culture and events. It inspired him to leave his home in Japan. To study journalism in New York. However, he found that writing alone did not fully express his creative intent. A fusion of both photography and writing. This was the avenue he’s been searching for. Shifting gears to pursue photography enabled Masao to realize his potential, and use his immense talent to bring global issues to the forefront. His main focus is capturing the faces and places affected by conflict, disease, and neglect.
