Ikeda was born in Ota, Tokyo, Japan, on January 2nd, 1928. He is a prolific writer, peace activist, and interpreter of Nichiren Buddhism. His interests in photography, art, philosophy, poetry and music are reflected in his published works. Ikeda led the international growth of the Soka Gakkai and turned it into what is considered the largest, most diverse international lay Buddhist association in the world.
Daisaku Ikeda is an avid amateur photographer with a particular knack for finding beauty and uniqueness in ordinary scenes. He began taking photographs in the 1970s while recuperating from illness, after a friend presented him with a camera and suggested it would be a good change of pace.
A series of his photographs has toured some 30 countries in an exhibition titled "Dialogue with Nature". This portfolio collection was printed on Ikeda's 46th birthday and is an example of his early photographic works. All of my items for sale are from Smoke Free environments.
