Irresistible Portraits of Little Japanese Girls Posing with Fruit

Osamu_Yokonami_Photography

In this light-hearted and stunning series, Japanese advertising and fashion photographer Osamu Yokonami showcases 100 portraits of little girls from 3.5 to 5 years old. His goal is to magnify the individuality of the each child by taking pictures of them in the same clothing with a fruit on their left shoulder.

From a bird’s eye view, the assemblage resembles a repetitive ensemble. But if we look more intently, each photograph largely differs from one another. The children’s hair length, the angle of their head and arms, and most especially their facial expressions — these details make each portrait more appealing and meaningful.

Yokonami pursued this project and he aims to create a thousand portraits. He has finished shooting 900 so far.

    Why on earth are you calling this “stunning”??

    Nothing “stunning” about it. How about lighthearted, fun, interesting typology study of Japanese school children.
