Born in Tokyo in 1983.
Mr. Hatano, a photographer and previously hunter, has quietly watched wildlife for years.
He developed multiple myeloma, a hematologic cancer in 2017.
He publicly announced his cancer and continues to convey his frank thoughts on the matter of life and death, now as an affiliated individual.
His words stir our feelings and evoke our reaction.
