The moment that Japanese photographer Takuya Yamamoto bought a second-hand, analog Hasselblad, everything changed. Prior to this pivotal moment, Yamamoto had no idea that photography would change the direction of his life. His work doesn’t have specific themes ‒instead, Yamamoto’s photographs revolve around color, which he selects during shooting. His use of saturation and intentional blur create dream-like snapshots that capture moments as if they were memories. Yamamoto does not edit any of his photos. He develops all of his work manually in the dark room, and prints them himself, using his own paper .

Yamamoto works as a professional freelance photographer in Japan, though he’s never studied art formally. He makes his works at a darkroom called AURASHA in Tokyo, Japan.
