Taipei, May 1 (CNA) Japanese actor Masatoshi Nagase, who developed a close affinity for Taiwan after playing a role in the Taiwanese baseball film “Kano,” has returned to Taiwan but his visit has nothing to do with shooting or promoting a film. The 48-year-old veteran actor and avid photographer is visiting Taiwan to promote a photo exhibition tour that will kick off on May 15 and showcase the images he took in the country. The 111 photographs that will go on display in the “Mind’s Mirror — Masatoshi Nagase Photography Works in Taiwan” exhibition are a record of his feelings and impressions of Taiwan, Nagase said in Taipei on Monday. Mostly shot in black and white, the photos capture street scenes and images of Nagase’s co-stars from “Kano,” in which he plays a strict Japanese coach. The 111 photos were selected from tens of thousands of photos that he took in Taiwan, the actor said. He said his grandfather, who owned a photo shop in Japan before World War II, had inspired his interest in photography.     [FULL  STORY]
