Japanese Photographers: Yasuhiro Ogawa

Yasuhiro Ogawa photographs in a gritty documentary style, in both color and black-and-white, using Leica rangefinder and Nikon SLR 35mm cameras. He was born in 1968 in Kanagawa prefecture, and began to take pictures at the age of 24, influenced by the work of Sebastiao Salgado.

His website displays selections from fourteen of his documentary series.

Seems to be a little heavy handed with the dodge/burn tool on the individual in the foreground. I wonder what Reuters would say. LOL
