Yusuke Sakai’s “Skin”

Photography // Friday, August 22, 2014
In his series “Skin”, Japanese photographer Yusuke Sakai used his camera to explore the unique surfaces of a variety of zoo animals’ skin. Sakai decided to stray away from the usual full form images taken of the animals and got extremely close to capture full frame images of their skin. Because of the scale and compositions of the images, the depicted skins become an abstracted form of themselves through the unique textures and patterns that are the unnoticed norm for each animal.
