Born in Kobe in 1976. Through his viewfinder, Tsuda has explored the relationship between human and nature, one of continued historical importance. He mainly photographs landscapes and has exhibited a large number of these works internationally since 2001. With a unique view toward nature and a sincere approach to the timeless theme “the relationship between photography and time,” Tsuda is cultivating a new trend in landscape photography as one of its rising stars and winner of The Art Encouragement Prize for New Artists in 2010.
