INTRODUCE OUR YOUNG TOKYO PHOTOGRAPHER - YOSUKE SANO !!
Tuesday December 9, 2014 / Share
Yosuke was born and raised in the beautiful surroundings of Mount Takao, but as a teenager yearned for life in the big city.
He dropped out of high school, and spent most of his time with friends in Shibuya having fun but doing nothing at all. After a few years of this idle life, Yosuke came to recall the great times he had spent snowboarding with his father as a child, and decided to return to the mountains as a residential staff at a mountain hut/shop.
There he witnessed the beauty of snow peaked mountains changing in color with the rising and setting of the sun. He felt the desire to capture these moments, and enrolled on a photography course at Art College.
After graduating, Yosuke started working as an assistant for a Japanese pin-up photographer. This brought him his first experience abroad; a trip to Bali. He found himself taken with life on the island, and immersed himself deeply in the culture. Yosuke has since travelled extensively in Europe and Asia, exploring different cultures, and settling for a short time in London.
He loves people’s smiles, organic sceneries and good at capturing honest personalities.
