Photographer Captures Living in Asia.
Ryosuke Kosuge, known as RK online, travels across Asia and takes sweeping photographs that capture the beautiful pictures of Asia.
As a graphic designer and DJ, Kosuge works as a photographer and photo editor using just his iPhone since 2013. Soon after, he began photographing as a freelancer using a DSLR camera.
Beautiful things are plentiful; beauty is in abundance. In fact, it can be found everywhere. Any continent, city, or person can have it. This week we’ll be visiting Asia, including Japan, Taiwan, China, and Vietnam. Ryosuke Kosuge is a Japanese photographer who travels throughout Asia to collect these little gems. He is sharing this fascinating treasury of photos with us today.
He is an excellent photographer and can capture every detail, from fascinating buildings to cityscapes to views to all that is in between, and not least the wonderful individuals that live there. Astonishing details abound on his photographs, where nature melds with culture, and all kinds of people bustle and live harmoniously together.
Architecture and people
In RK’s case, the genre of photography he finds himself in is relatively new and very interesting. Ryosuke was one of the pioneers in the “Dense” genre of photography, emphasizing the intensity of Asian urban life. His photos are filled with action, many details, and riveting narratives. In addition to “Grandpa of Akihabara Electric Town,” he is also known for the “Dense Collection of Taipei Bridge.”
He uses the SONY A7R III, a professional camera that costs over 2,000 dollars. There’s no particular favourite lens for him; he uses them as needed. In the top photo of Mount Fuji, the perspective shifts and the mountain appears even bigger because the shot was taken with a zoom lens.
While he enjoys shooting both architecture and people, he would choose people if he were forced to choose only one of them.
The rather wanderlust-prone RK often wishes he could visit every country in the world, and he’d definitely like to do so.
Today’s post focuses on Asia, but he also has photos from Europe, the USA, and other countries. Photographs from countries he has never visited always intrigue him.
As his favourite place to photograph is not in a particular place, the saying “it’s not about the destination, but the journey” applies to him very well.
He loves researching the locations he’s shooting at but decides what to do once he arrives. For his location, he relies on the internet and books; this is like most of us. During dawn, sunset, and night, when the sky is blue, and the lights are on, RK enjoys taking pictures. He enjoys the most from spring through summer, and the colours of flowers and sakuras reveal this.
