A few pictures of an assignment for Der Spiegel published this week in the German weekly. It was my first time shooting sumo wrestlers and I really liked the atmosphere, almost monastic during the training (6am- 10am) and very friendly during the lunch (11am-13am). I went first in a sumo club for kids in Asakusa […]

Several factors seem to push young women, mostly, to konkatsu: – In 2010, wedding […]
