FIND A STORY IN 
EVERYTHING YOU CREATE.

Hey, I'm Dean. I'm a Street Photographer based on the Gold Coast, Australia. Focused on capturing and writing about Japan.

I think it's important to focus on creating stories through all mediums, whether it be through the camera, design or writing, and I'm hopeful to be able to continue telling these stories.

Below you will find key highlights from my journey across Japan, including people I've met, and key experiences.

Anata no Warehouse

The five-story mega-arcade was the brainchild of Taishiro Hoshino, a set designer for kabuki theater, who opened it in 2009. Far from a simple collection of games, Anata no Warehouse (“Your Warehouse”) was a recreation of the Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong’s New Territories. However, it strangely closed in 2019.
