When his father passed away, Nakanishi Mitsuo hastily selected a photo from a family album to use as a "funeral portrait." However, he was unhappy it didn't properly reflect his father's true personality. Nakanishi, the owner of a photo studio in a mountain town in Kochi Prefecture, vowed to help others avoid a similar situation. Bringing humor and friendship to his area's older adults, Nakanishi captures their natural smiles and genuine expressions and has to date photographed over 700 people.
