Aya Okabe — from 「天晴つばめ」

Aya Okabe was born and raised in Tokyo. A student of Mitsugu Onishi, Koji Onaka, and Masato Seto, she continues to hold solo shows of her work in Tokyo. Since the creation of the 2008 series 天晴つばめ (very loosely translated as “Swallows in Clear Skies”), from which the above photo comes, she has set down her DSLR to upgrade to a 35mm rangefinder and the joys of cheap consumer grade color negative film.
