hour of glory
This photo captures city workers dressed up as women participating in a "chindonya" musical parade for a new year's celebration in Wakayama Prefecture. The flamboyant clothing and comical makeup embodies the spirit of the entertaining festivities.
I love shooting people. Every person has a different history. The expression of one's face and body changes with the emotions s/he is experiencing. I believe that photography is the communication that happens between the subject and the person behind the lens.
