Kenji Hirasawa – Thermal Camera Art

Thermal camera art by Kenji Hirasawa

Kenji Hirasawa (1982, Tokyo, Japan) has always been fascinated by skin-ship, where people interact with each other through the sense of touch. This is due to the fact that the Japanese consider it polite to keep one’s distance when communicating; they bow to each other instead of shaking hands in greetings. Therefore, it is very rare to feel other people’s body temperature in Japan. In this series titled Portraits, the Japanese artist uses thermography to show the beauty of human vitality and to reconnect visually with human warmth.
