Tsutomu Endo Fine Art photography

Japanese art photography


Tsutomu Endo

Born in 1978,Tsutomu Endo found his beginnings as a skater and snowboarder in the winter mountains and abundant nature of Azumino,Japan.Shince the 1990s,he has followed the trends of board culture,leading in the development of his local scene and visiting mountains and communities around the world.his works have been featured in snowboarding magazines and other publications.Over 20 years of activities in the snowboarding world have earned Endo recognition in Japan and internationally.
Attracted to the counterculture movement in the 1990s, he was influenced by the rave scene,hippie culture,and psychedelic experience to become fascinated by the spiritual world.Endo brings his own interpretation to his experiences on his many travels and the way people lives,as well as to concepts such as returning to nature and permaculture that are an extension of his counter culture.From there he expands his themes of expression to freedom of the mind” and the “great cycles of life in the earth”. From the outset, Endo has defined the concept of his photographs as “inner focus”, and continues his journeys in pursuit of artistic expression and harmony with the splendor and life of this dynamic planet, from his base in Azumino, Japan.




雪の写真家

I was born in an age of material abundance and am the manifestation of a generation that lives freely.Based on the concept that “humans are part of the great life force,Earth,” my works gaze at this planet from a timeless perspective, and record through the fleeting experience of photography the changing global environment and that which is being lost; the resulting ethnic groups and communities of consciousness; and cultures and the relationships with the problems that arise within them, and search for deep psyche through the processes and archiving that accompany artistic creation. My interests span beyond the confined academic expression of intellectual contextualization,which feels somewhat dated in the current era, to include harmonization with fundamental instincts through the five senses - or even the sixth.
