Have you noticed the beautiful photos of the library on our new web pages? They are the work of Eduardo Fujii, Computer Programmer and Systems Analyst at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies and talented photographer. I asked Eduardo about his background in photography:
“My interest in photography started when I was in college pursuing a degree in computer engineering. At that time, photography never went too far because it was competing with another passion of mine: classical piano. When I finished college, I had two diplomas: one in engineering and another one as a classical pianist. I opted to pursue a technical career which brought me to Monterey and the Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
Fast forward a couple of years and I decided to revive my interest in photography. I got my first digital camera at the end of 2006 and since then I have been working on defining my own style. I like fine art photography and I have also been exploring alternative processes like pinhole, lomography, and cyanotypes. I was part of a group exhibition at the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado in February of 2008 and I’ll be part of the 2009 juried exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel from September 19 through December 4. There will be a walk tour of the gallery by Al Weber, the juror for the Carmel show, on September 19 at 3 PM and reception will be from 4 PM to 6PM.
