A series of photos by Akihiko Miyoshi, using a mirror to create some really brilliant images.
Let’s all give a round of applause to Akihiko for ditching any software trickery and making these fantastic images with only some coloured paper, glue and a mirror (and what looks like quite an expensive antique camera). Commenting on how technology and over-editing can create a sort of tension in photographs, Akihiko is on a journey to prove that all you need to make a beautiful image is your bare hands and some craft supplies. Using mostly red, green and blue tape to as they are “the three primary colors that constitute a pixel,” Akihiko edits only the mirror in front of him before posing for this selection of truly fantastic self-portraits. Pretty inspirational stuff.
