just like one of my other favourite photographers, Hitoshi Ishihara, the next two photographers i want to share with you also take beautiful photos of their children and family, as well as wonderful shots throughout Japan.
the first four pictures are by Pola-Life, who takes adorable pictures of his little girl!
and the last eight are by Hideaki Hamada, living in the quaint city of Osaka. i just love his mix of country life and city life together in his photos. you can also see his blog, and music project.
...also, i am thinking about getting involved in the art fundraiser going on this friday in Chinatown, for the "first fridays" event where art galleries are on display for the public. my colleges art department is having a fundraiser in one of the galleries, and is asking the drawing students if they want to showcase live drawing sessions with the models for the public to view us as we're working.....i'm not sure if i want to do it though...
i think it would be a great opportunity and it sounds really fun, but i don't really enjoy 'first fridays' as they're overly packed with people (i'm a bit claustrophobic). and i have never drawn in front of a live audience before, except my studio classes, so i'm very nervous... i have until thursday to make a decision...?
