Osamu Wataya is a photographer, but only in the dictionary sense of the word. Most artistic photographers use their subjects to make a work of art, “I want to be able to serve my subjects,” he says, “I want my subjects to be able to use me.” When the shutter snaps, he isn’t so much freezing a moment in time, as he is giving it reason to exist, “I don’t believe in photography for photography’s sake, but for the potential of an image, the potential of photography.”
