After teaching himself photography, Takei started shooting in the streets with a focus on girls in school uniform in 1995. Initially, all he took was snapshots of them. However, as he gradually became fascinated by their aura, which is unique to adolescent girls, he started pursuing delicate and fragile maidenhood and shooting the girls seriously as his work. Notably, when he uses film cameras, he accentuates highlights to cover his subjects with light. His use of the old-fashioned method of utilizing the film grain texture of silver halide photography is rare in this day and age where digital photography dominates the scene. As a result of pursuing a familiar yet new expression of girl photography, he has established a delicate, simple and classic photography theory of his own for those subjects that are prone to be erotic. It was only recently that he started to exhibit his work, which he has been archiving.
