Shooting for Kokusyoku Sumire's new album

I shot lovely Japanese duo "Kokusyoku Sumire" last year for their new album which will go on sale in February.
there are lots of fans in the underground scene, but I want more and more people to know them. I think their music is truly fantastic and their costumes are unique and impressive also. you can find them on youtube and this page is good to know more about them in English.

Ayame Adachi(A.K.A. Adachi-Kakoujo, collage artist, painter and designer) and I collaborated on the design of the jacket. she mixed traditional Japanese objects with the photographs I finished. I love her amazing work!

I created some of images for ads, booklet and novelty goods.

I directed the artwork of Anne Lovett's first album. she is an amazing and very talented pianist. I'm so glad to be involved in the project. it was a wonderful experience, we discussed via e-mail many times till the artwork is fully satisfied.

works for "abilletage"

one of my friends Bambi launched a corset brand "abilletage". the first time we met, I was in a band and she was a student of dressmakers' school. I can't believe we work together now as a photographer and a designer!
I love her creations. her works bring us to the unreal world and highlight the mystique of the woman.
