While walking in Ginza I ran into my friend Narashige Matsuki and his wife, Yumiko. He was packing his Plaubel Makina 6x7 rangefinder (top) and Leica M4-P (left). We got coffee and got caught up- since we all last met the two of them took a trip to LA and the American southwest. I love how intimate and personal his pictures are. This picture from their trip is so great.
To all you millions of 17 year old art and design students* on this site, I really suggest following him on tumblr. He’s making pictures that you will like. He’s making pictures that can really teach you something about photography. Don’t think that you need to detach yourself emotionally from your photos! Figure out what makes you (and who you’re with) what you are, and go from there.
