Tokio Kuniyoshi

Based in NY      Tagged with:

Born and raised in Okinawa, JAPAN, based in New York. He moved to San Francisco in 2002 and got into the photography world. He started learning from the basic by himself and looking everywhere through the finder. After spending 4 years in SF, he relocated himself in New York to seek his unknown possibilities and new opportunities. He currently owns his own photo studio “Studio11 New York”, focusing on shooting more of his fine arts photography. The philosophy behind his photography is to look into the objects differently. He has his own unique way of looking into the world and capturing the way that brings photography to not just a framed scene but also an artwork. His works can tell a story and stimulate your senses, and before you realize, you are in his world.
