Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Black&White At Its Finest

Thanks to my colleague, Kit, I’ve discovered Mr. Junku Nishimura‘s jaw-dropping photography (hope I didn’t mess up his name). One could talk for hours about his vintage versus modern compositions, about his eye-popping contrasts or about his incredible talent of capturing short moments in time, true slices of life, be it human’s, animal’s or object’s. But the best thing to do is to watch in awe. Enjoy.

Junku Nishimura seems also like a black belt in Bresson’s “decisive moment” philosophy—just look at this one: right time and right framing captured with trademark contrast. So beautiful it makes you dizzy.

Thanks Kit for Bresson, his work is truly amazing and his philosophy unquestionable.

wow, nishimura is something. each picture is like a part from a movie.
