Metal Cans by Japanese Atelier SyuRo

With the holidays arriving in next to no time, it’s been hectic here in the office. We’ve had some big boxes take over the floor space and have re-stocked various items in the shop. I think I’ll be glued to my camera over the next month, hoping to catch any sort of daylight that appears so I can convey these in the best way possible.

Masters Atelier Photographed by Natsumi Akatsuka

I was on the hunt for a new set of photography this morning when I came across a small series on Natsumi Akatsuka’s photo journal. I’ve been a subscriber to Natsumi’s website for a fair few years now and it’s great to see her return to Japan and visit different places, in a lot of ways I’m very envious.
