About Mari Kojima:
“I was born in Shimane, Japan. I grew up alright and now I’m 27. I work, take photos, sometimes draw and make patterns and such, eat ham and sausages very often but not so much if it makes any sense. I’m interested in things or people that are brutally honest.”

    this was my fav picture on mari’s blog. though i liked it better in colour. looks bit too daido-ish like this ( actually , is all new japanese photography to be shown here going to look daido(moriyama)-ish // here i am again complaining about the color scheme.

    While I agree that the photo is better in color, why would all contrasted b&w pics resemble Moriyama’s work ? Come on…
