Yu Kusanagi — from Snow

Yu Kusanagi was born in Akita Prefecture in 1982, and graduated from the Tohoku University of Art and Design in 2007. He has been exhibiting his photography since 2003, picking up several awards including one from Konica Minolta in 2003. Most recently, in the Fall of 2010 Kusanagi’s Snow series, from which the above photo comes, was an Honorable Mention selection by photographer Mika Ninagawa for the annual Canon Cosmos of Photography competition.

More work from Snow can be seen in a special extended Japan Exposures gallery.
