Japan Exposures is pleased to present the work of Masahiro Kodaira, born and raised in Tokyo and educated at Tokyo Zokei University. Kodaira was an informal student of famed avant-garde photographer Kiyoji Otsuji, and Otsuji’s influence is clear to see in the following images. Presented here are five images each from Kodaira’s two major projects to date, “Dr. Lorentz’s Butterfly” and “Onbashira”. Please see our interview with Kodaira where he discusses his motivations behind both series, his relationship with Otsuji, and more. We are also featuring Kodaira as one of our Cover Artists.
