Hiroshi Watanabe is a prolific Japanese photographer. His online portfolio encompass many themes, from kabuki players, landscapes, and portraits. My favorite work of his is Suo Sarumawashi, portraits of Japanese performing monkeys. The expressions on their faces elicit a lot of emotion, despite the muted colour tones.
Sometimes humor at the simplest form can really hit the spot. Check out these funny monkey faces and brighten your day. I think the descriptions are just as funny as the pictures, and also somewhat informative on why the monkey looks the way it does.
Why should we live if we must die? It is one of the questions Danish artist Nikoline Liv Andersen puts us in this exhibition. With a plethora of bodies, thick fabrics, flowers and fruits, life’s transience is reflected upon, man in defense against death and the body in decomposition.
