It was sad to hear when he passed away at the age of 96 late last year, but at the same time I couldn’t help but marvel in his achievements and stature.

Photographic Works by Nao Shimizu

One of our most popular posts from recent months was Tembea Bags photographed by Nao Shimizu.

I thought it should only be fitting to show off her photography and offer a taste of her aesthetic …
