akane yobikawa – portrait

Akane Yobikawa is a young ballerina from Tokyo who I met  in the seaside city of Hua Hin in Thailand. I had been commissioned to shoot a cover for the December issue of Ambiance Magazine and thought that Akane would make a great subject.

Akane had gone out the night before and her eyes were paying the price. We went at the beach and I spotted this large rock sticking out of the sand. Although we took several pictures before this one, this was the image which obsessed me for days before the shoot.

Playing violin is her second love… We therefore combined the two and somehow I think it worked out.

Thank you Akane.
