Danilo Suzuki


My name is Danilo Suzuki, I’m a street photographer from Brazil, but living in Japan since 2016. I have a background in architecture, so taking photos of famous buildings was a pretty regular hobby for me. Often in architecture photography is much needed to show the human scale, thus including a person in the frame. From that point, a shift towards street photography was very natural, and now, people became my main subject.

It is fascinating for me how complex street photography is in terms of evaluating how good is a given picture and also the dynamics involving; if you explore the three-dimensional aspect of architecture photography (maybe four, if you show a person moving with a slow shutter speed, for example), on the streets I think we deal with maybe a fifth dimension: emotions. And that is a game changer.
