Hideaki Hamada Takes Sweet Photos of His Two Sons, Haru and Mina

Hideaki Hamada’s photos of his two sons, Haru and Mina, draw you into their world. The pictures tell of their little adventures and may remind you of your own childhood, like they do for Hideaki. “My children are not only my little darlings but off-shoots of myself. When I look at them, I have a strange feeling – as if I am watching myself re-living my life,” he says.

The reason his pictures are so engaging is because Hideaki isn’t actively photographing his sons, but allowing them to do their own thing. “When I take photos of my children, the important thing is to maintain an objective perspective. Not too close, but also not too far away, as if I am watching them from behind. Something close to mere observation, I think. Obeying this rule gives the photos a universal quality.”

Very nice pictures of very cute boys but I’m not overly enamored by this Japanese stylistic overexposed washed out colors look. It’s getting old.
