Bry Ony, a New Zealander living in Tokyo, is more full of life and zest than anybody I’ve met. She seems to appreciate and savor every moment, and when around her, one soon becomes joyful oneself. I photographed her for the cover of Pink magazine, which is devoted to informing women about breast cancer and encouraging them to get early examinations. Since Bry is obviously a survivor, I wanted the tone of the shoot to be positive and uplifting, so I chose Shinjuku Gyoen as the location – perhaps the most beautiful park in Tokyo.
