Born in 1995, Kyoto, Japan.
“We all know the feeling – some days feel like everything you experience is an array of affairs that already happened to you before. Like everything is a repetition… Nothing special.
Since I started to dive into the genre of street photography, and bring my camera with me everywhere, I constantly find myself in vivid situations. The brief moments of surprising and often humorous incidents – interactions between strangers, nature growing wild, or animals being their weird selves in public – reminds me that I naturally exist as a part of the city and nothing exists on its own. It’s a very poetic feeling. When I catch things like this in a photograph I create what I refer to as “The Link” – a connection between the poetic moment and our mechanistic perception of the world… To remind myself and others of the importance of looking at everyday things humbly.” – Ryo Osakada
