Toshihiro Oshima from TOKYO

Here’s another great discovery I made on Flickr: Tshihiro Oshima.

The Art of Toshihiro Oshima comes from a great Cinema passion, in particular from the inspiration grabbed from extraordinary Photography Directors like: Geoffrey Unsworth (DP of “2001: A Space Odyssey; Cabaret; A Bridge Too Far etc) or Gordon Willis (DP of Godfather series, early Woody Allen films etc), and a particular obsession with Stanley Kubrick.

Olympus OM-2S + Zuiko 55mm f/1.2

I’ve been shooting with an Olympus OM-2S (Spot/Program) film camera since about 4 months and now I think it’s time to spend few words about it.
