Profile

Madoka Hori / Photo-writer

I was born and currently still live in Hyogo Prefecture. I work in translation, foreign entrepreneur support, English interpretation, and I’m a photo-writer. I work at a foreign investment start-up company specializing in network marketing, and am in charge of progress management and customer support. Since 2011, I have been translating the Front line of the IT Business weekly column in Fuji Sankei Business i.

I capture whatever moves and impresses me, such as daily scenery and the expressions of people I meet when traveling. I will present slices of life and locations, lifestyles, a sense of the seasons, and food from my own perspective.
