We met our next Colectivo Futurist at one of our events in London, when he brought his photography prints for us to have a look at. Yasuharu Sasaki’s photos struck us instantly. While his subject matter might seem to be quite simple, it’s the way he manipulates the camera and available light to capture objects with intimacy and an acute attention to detail that makes his photographs so stunning. We liked his work so much that we had to ask Yasuharu to exhibit some of his prints at our next Junktion event in London this coming Friday, Jan. 25th.

There is no one in particular who has influenced my work, but my favorite photographers are Henri Cartier-Bresson and Nick Knight.

Photography interests me as it can capture things from a different perspective. It also allows us to notice certain moments, objects, or people which are sometimes overlooked. I also find I can freely express what’s on my mind into something visual.
