[WATCH NOW] Japan’s first woman photo-journalist still shooting at 101
One of Japan’s first woman photo-journalists Tsuneko Sasamoto continues shooting and capturing moments with her camera at the age of 101.
Tsuneko Sasamoto was born on September 1st, 1914 and is one of the country’s oldest photographers!
Despite breaking her hand and both legs last year, the centurion is still taking photos, reports Bored Panda.
Sasamoto is now undergoing rehab while photographing flowers for a project titled “Hana Akari,” or “Flower Glow,” a tribute to friends who have passed away.
She became a professional photographer at the age of 25 and garnered attention for her photos of pre- and post-war Japan.
“Pretty scared but curious, don’t like it but want to see it. I feel compelled to face the world and let people know what I see, just want to have the pictures taken…” said Sasamoto
