The 101 years old Tsuneko Sasamoto is one of the first woman photo-journalists in Japan. Born in 1914, the lady is among the country’s oldest photographers. Despite the fact that she broke her hand and both legs last year, Ysuneko is still taking photos. She is currently undergoing rehab while she is making photos of flowers for the project called “Hana Akari”, or “Flower Glow,” as a tribute for friends who have passed away.
Sasamoto became a professional photographer when she was at the age of 25. She draw the attention of the public for her pre- and post-war Japan photos. Her inborn curiosity has always driven her to work.
