VISUAL POETRY BY Yuji Watanabe - Avant Gardist

VISUAL POETRY BY Yuji Watanabe



Japanese photographer Yuji Watanabe is already known in the fashion industry for his artistic, sophisticated signature. All the famous magazines from Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Fucking Young featured his work. He collaborated with Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen and emerging Japanese brands like IHNN and Masako Teranishi. Lately, he has produced a remarkable series with the collodion technique and had an exhibition in Tokyo. The technique of Tintype photography was created in the 19th century before film photography began; it made the image directly on metal. We love these photographs' melancholic touch of the past, although they are not old. Our minds bring memories of our elderly family members and cultural heritage, which are intensely evoked through the images.
