Email from Leslie

It is official … I have just received an email from my dearest friend, Leslie Kee that includes the following excerpt:

"I am now working on the possibility to photograph our Superstar Nakamori Akina, as I am going through Ayumi Hamasaki to help me contact her"

He is currently working on his newest and biggest book called "Superstars" and he has photographed many Japanese stars on it including 安室奈美恵 and 石川さゆり . His interview and a collage was included in the newest Japanese Harper’s Bazaar January issue. You can also read more of the contents of the email and see a cap of the interview on my blog.

Hopefully, he will be able to finally get to Akina and include her in time for the publication. He has also previously mentioned his dream of photographing all the 80’s idols in a single book. He has photographed Kyon2 and Miho amongst the 80’s top idols and have spoken to Seiko once at a Karaoke for an hour or so (no, she didn’t sing). Matsutya Yumi is his close friend and Akina is the only one that he has yet to photograph and would really love to. He said that he will tell her about this big fan (me) that lives in Australia now and I will tell him to include everyone here too! He also said before that I will be one of the first he will notify when this dream comes true!

Oh! What a wonderful reality that will be when that happens!


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.
