Masayuki Furukawa’s photographs seem serene and youthful; his current favorites were taken at a skateboarding place near his home in London. Furukawa does portraits and landscapes but while his inspiration for portraits is a unique essence of the model’s personality, landscape is about looking at himself. Furukawa captures colour-washed scenescapes and portraits that seem to pause time, yet with their stillness comes an equal spontaneity. I really enjoyed scrolling through his portfolio which is arranged as a diary, keeping record of his tiny emotions in his daily life. Each of his feelings is illustrated in pictures, showing his emotions, thus creating an archive of his raw ideas.
