“You Next” Black Barber Shop Culture.
Sometimes I’m not sure what I love more, the beautiful portraits captured by photographer Lisa Kato or her subjects who are as layered as the beautiful images captured by Kato’s eye for intimacy. Then you are introduced to her husband photographer Koki Sato who’s images have no humans in sight but strike that same intimate and emotional cord with his ability to come so close to something that can seem so distant. They are both highly accomplished photographers who continue to capture timeless beauty together in their personal lives but apart in their photography. We can question apart, but it’s clear that the intimacy that they both capture individually is clearly from the same place-the heart.
