In honor of World Photo Day (August 19th) ArchDaily wanted to thank the photographers who bring to life the projects that we publish every day. So we asked architects to weigh in on the work of some of our most-appreciated architecture photographers. Here, Chiaki Arai writes on behalf of Taisuke Ogawa.

I have asked Taisuke to photograph my projects from our early days. Taisuke was the chief photographer of Shinkenchiku-sha (the famous Japanese architecture publisher) and now he is the representative photographer of Japan. Until recently he was the president of the Japan Professional Photographers Society, but I have worked with him from our young days. He takes analog photos even now and doesn’t use digital. He took many projects by Fumihiko Maki or me. My difficult requests sometimes confuse him but he always accepts it. I am extremely grateful for him.
