Taka brightens people's lives with her photography.  Her way of seeing the world captures moments, personalities, and experiences that remind the viewer of the playful artist in all of us.

Taka moved to New York City in 2004 from her native Japan. Early studies at PhotoManhattan integrated the technical aspects of photography into her singular approach.

Takako's images have graced the pages of Wine Spectator magazine, Walden Guitars catalog covers, Jersey City Journal, Japion, Chopsticks Magazine, Dozens of CD covers and booklets, travel brochures, hardcover and paperback book covers, and countless performing artist websites.  Her work can also be found on the walls, in menus, on websites, and in magazine and newspaper advertisements for New York City Metropolitan area's best restaurants and cafes.
