beautyfull. lots of white dogs in asia..
small victories in here, lots of them!!
yea exactly – i met a photographer named Saki in Tokyo and shared with her about the Small Victories show we had just done in Hong Kong and she immediately pointed me to Ume’s work
Amazing, i’m in love with these pictures, the best photo’s i’ve ever seen! The business man and the kid #10 says more than 1000 words could describe about japan. Kids can have fun and play around, but once they grow up they’re in the most stressfull and hard-working place they can be. The last one is so iconic as well, keeping to themselves while someone is sleeping on the floor of the metro/train. If you ever go to Japan you’ll notice how japanese people can sleep everywhere. Awesome find Jeff & Saki.
yes totally agreee the shot of the kid and the business man is an amazing capture and represents so much of the culture there
Its nice to see some humor injected into photography. Great documentation of how not so serious life can be sometimes. The power stance is epic in #4!
I’ve been coming back to these photos periodically all day. Such a great post, especially for a Monday.
It is very interesting!!I like the first one.The boy is so cute!!
YEP! These are some of my favorite photos ever on Booooooom! All so lovely!!!
A lot of funny elements and a little bit sadness
those are epic.
simple & lovely….really great captures.
I love how he captures the madness and humour in the mundane. excellent stuff!
tiene algo de terror combinado con comedia… muy talentoso 😀
hahaha hilarious! i love these, they truely capture the essence of asian culture, i’m not asian but living in Hong Kong i have seen/experienced almost all of this.
