Koskue Okahara

Born in 1980. Kosuke Okahara began his professional career at age 23 after his college graduation. Since then he has been devoting himself to the theme of "Ibasyo" which refers, in Japanese, to "the physical and emotional space where a people exist", (or "Inner-peace of the people"). Okhara has taken this brief to investigate the personal choices of people who are involved in illegal activities at the bottom of society in Colombia, and young Japanese people who are struggling with self-injury. His works have appeared in various publications such as TIME.com, Newsweek Japan, and Courrier International.
