A legend in the making, Hiroshi Watanabe had a successful career in LA doing TV production before making the switch to full-time photographer.
Originally from Sapporo, Japan, with work in museums and the George Eastman House, Watanabe's photography career is admirable and inspiring.
Browse his work online at the official Hiroshi Watanabe website. Watanabe's black and white photography images of fascinating subjects like Kabuki players, brick workers in India, animals around us... I had a hard time choosing just one image to accompany this blog post.
