A photograph that captures a multi-layered story gradually revealing itself to the viewer is the goal of all great photographers.

Kenji Takigami has spent decades capturing such photographs. He’s been photographing some of the world’s most interesting faces & places in many countries. People like Astronaut Neil Armstrong, Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry Kissinger, or great jazz drummer Elvin Jones. Places like hidden Burma, or the world of Lubbavitch Brooklyn.

As you’ll see in the sample photos found in the portfolio, each photograph tells a story. What do you see?
