Portrait photography becomes compelling when the photographer seems to capture something about the subject through the image, something that becomes clear to the audience as soon as they look at it.
This Japanese photographer managed to perfectly capture his grandmother’s playful spirit, while simultaneously displaying his own warmth and affection towards her in these bright and heartwarming photos. The photos became a viral hit on Twitter after being posted by photographer YASUTO.
Fittingly, the backdrop for the portraits are some quintessential examples of Japan’s famously beautiful natural phenomena throughout the changing seasons.
