I stumbled across Manabu Yamanaka’s work and it suck in my mind. Manabu Yamanaka was born in Hyogo Prefecture in 1959, and moved to Tokyo when he was 23 to pursue a career in commercial photography. In 1989 Yamanaka released Arakan , portraits of Tokyo homeless, which would mark the first of a career-spanning over 25 years featuring a body of portraits and still lives focusing on subjects outside the margins of society, including the physically deformed, street children, and the very elderly. I have chosen to show a few images from his series entitled Fujohkan.
