Guest: Katsuhiko Sakiyama

We are pleased to welcome Katsuhiko Sakiyama, who lives on the island of Khao Hagan in the Philippines and lives close to the daily lives of the islanders. He moved to the island in 1991, fascinated by the happy, self-sufficient lifestyle of the islanders, who live by the blessings of the sea and the land.

What is the “Present to the Future” that Mr. Sakiyama, now 87 years old, wants to share with us?

Presented by

Satoshi Seki / Editor, Producer

Participated in the planning and editing of culture magazines such as POPEYE, BRUTUS, and Takarajima. In addition, he was the editor of science fiction magazines at Tokuma Shoten. Seki has gone on to produce a game version of the best-selling novel “Legend of the Galactic Heroes” along with PS software “Democratic Crisis!” Lately his work is focused on a variety of digital content. In addition he is a part-time lecturer at Nihon Kogakuin, director of the Stimulus Switch Research Institute, and a member of OYAKO Day planning staff.

Bruce Osborn / Photographer Oyako Day Originator

Bruce moved to Tokyo in 1980 to where he works as a commercial photographer. In addition to his OYAKO series and OYAKO Day projects, much of his current activities are centered on his photographs of marine debris. Micro plastics and other manmade pollution are having a great impact on the oceans and its sea life. Bruce collects the debris and brings them to the studio where he creates colorful graphic design with them. He feels that these items are not to blame for the pollution, it is man’s disregard and wastefulness that created this environmental problem. Through his “NATURE CALLS” photos, Bruce hopes to draw awareness to this issue while showing even trash can be made into something beautiful.
