Japanese artist Kenji Yanobe often incorporates wearable sculptures into his work. Particularly with the multiple photography series under the Atom Suit Project, he explores a post-apocalyptic world centering around a humanoid figure clad snugly in a protective suit and headgear, standing out against the backdrop of Earth’s muted ruins. The mood is contagiously melancholic.
