Tomoaki Hata: “The Night Is Still Young”
“The Night Is Still Young” is the title of a photo book by Los Angeles-based, Japanese photographer Tomoaki Hata. The book, which was published in November 2010 and is unfortunately sold out, documents the gay scene of Osaka and especially its drag culture. Here’s a collection of the photographs, I especially like the very intimate and sexy photo series “Ichi and Mi-kun” at the bottom of this post. All pictures courtesy Miyako Yoshinaga art prospects.
UPDATE (2 June 2012): Hata has also uploaded a video with all pictures a book a couple of days ago. You find it below the pictures.
