Nathalie Daoust – Hide and Sex

(Photo removed at Ms. Daoust’s request) Last night I went, with Jim O’connell, to the opening of Canadian photographer Nathalie Daoust’s ‘Hide and Sex’ exhibition at the vanilla gallery in Ginza. I was invited by Yuri, my pole dancer friend from the show I shot recently, who features as one of Nathalies models.

Yasukuni-Update

Yuko Katsuta and Uchujin, The bridge overlooking Yasukuni dori, august 15th 2009 If you’ve read my previous post on Yasukuni August 15th then hopefully you’ll remember the wonderful old woman I mentioned meeting on the bridge overlooking the entrance to the shrine.

Yasukuni-August 15th

August the 15th is the anniversary of the Japanese surrender at the end of World War II.
Every year on this day 1000’s of people go to the controversial Yasukuni shrine in Kudanshita to pay their respects to the war dead (including the 14 class A war criminals whose souls are intered there).

A year ago……pt.1

Inspired in part by motionid and his ‘from the archives’ posts over on his blog, I have been looking back through photos from a year ago, seeing if there are pictures I didn’t like at the time which I like now and attempting to see if there has been any progression/changes in my work.
