{kanako sasaki}






I'm crazy about Kanako Sasaki's work, especially the first and third (pink dress) photographs. She has such a unique perspective and a great eye.

"Kanako was born in Japan and attended the Ithaca College and School of Visual Arts. Her striking images of obscured faces, lone figures and minimal landscapes are a contemporary take on the floating world of traditional Ukiyo-e paintings, where ordinary life becomes extraordinarily focused."

Kanako's work has be shown at the Hitotsubo-ten Gallery, Morta Politica Gallery, and Art Cocoon Gallery in Tokyo, and the Visual Arts Gallery in New York.
