Meet the Author

Michio Hoshino visited Alaska from his native Japan when he was a teenager. He stayed for three months. Hoshino returned to Japan to attend college, but after he finished his degree, he went back to Alaska, this time for good. Realizing that he needed a way to earn a living, he chose photography. Hoshino didn't know much about taking professional photographs, but he didn't let that bother him. "I taught myself, little by little," he said.
