Born in 1985, Naomi Okubo is a contemporary artist from Japan that is interested in the relationship between oneself and others or society and a contradiction that happen among the relationships. From an early age she was not sure how to relate with other people since she was afraid of what others would think about her.

Those feelings were expressed by his series of paintings from 2006 up to 2010 mostly showing his plural self-portraits in an effort to escape from those fears by merging all them people in the world as herself. Since 2010 Naomi wanted to express herself through his own experience and as a result, she changed his art expression by using ready-made images from fashion advertisements or interior

magazines into his paintings, trying to understand painting composition rather than the contents themselves From 2012 and on Naomi obviously feels better about herself, even though she is always interested of other people's opinions, so she returned to his original expression in art, painting the way that she should connect to the societies he is involved with! Below you can enjoy his 2013 series of paintings.

Even though he calls himself an amateur photographer his work shows that he is more than that. In his latest blog post he is covering the ethics behind Street Photography while "Capturing the order within this chaos [...]of street photography in Phnom Penh" Tim while doing street photography tries not to offend people by taking their pics , for that same reason he believes he won't be

a great street photographer as this genre is defined by great photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliott Erwitt, famous for shooting their subjects while being "themselves" invisible and in the danger to upset people just after their pic is taken. Tim Kelsall definition of street photography is more related to a modern laography(somewhat synonym for Folklore) where the photographer seeks to capture and document moments of people's everyday life than shoot only the most awkward and bizarre of those moments. Below you can check out some of his Phnom Penh Street Photography sessions.
