Yasumase YONE Yonehare is undoubtedly one of the most dynamic and influential magazine editors and photographers in Japan.
Yonehara’s signature lo-fi sexy photographic style was established though a collection of erotic Fujifilm cheki shots for Smart Girls with some of Tokyo’s hottest models. The unprecedented success of his first book, a folio of these Smart Girl portraits, bestowed him instant fame.
It was at this point that Yonehara’s sphere of influence became global, with brands such as American Apparel appropriating his unique photographic style for use in advertising campaigns. A new genre of editorial photography was born, founded on Yonehara’s instant Polaroid style.
A Creative Director sought by fashion labels, music groups and advertising agencies around the world, Yonehara brings a unique aesthetic, vision and Japanese pop-culture sensibility to the world of art.
In September 2010 Backwoods Gallery is honored to be hosting Shake That Ass by Yasamasa Yonehara, an exhibition of original photography and installations.
