Five years ago, Takashi Yasui’s niece was born. It was with this new arrival, Yasui would discover a passion for photography. What started out as a way to capture his beloved family, began evolving into a serious hobby. Now, Yasui works as a freelance photographer based out of Kyoto, Osaka, Japan–and his portfolio has grown quite a bit.
Documenting everyday life in Japan as the artist sees it, Yasui is showing the world just how beautiful Japan is. With a primary focus on street photography, the photographer’s adventures take him to a variety of locations ranging from bustling city streets, to vibrant bamboo forests.
