After graduating from Omura Beauty Fashion College in Fukuoka, Hanada moved to New York. After working as an assistant designer in the fashion industry, he became a stylist in London. He then enrolled in Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin in 2015 to study photography and started working as an independent photographer in Berlin.
Hanada attempts to reveal and reconstruct invisible things inside the visible through photography. He also addresses a question towards ourselves where we tend to stop thinking in our daily routines, and tries to shed light on something that have been overlooked in everyday life.
In this residency in Fukuoka, the artist plans to create a new city landscape of Fukuoka with support from an art university and the local people. He also plans to make a collage art work as well as bookbinding workshops.
