Kanayo is a Washington DC area photographer. His approach to photography is artistic, photojournalistic and arguably cinematic. With every shot he takes he’s constantly thinking of new ways to creatively tell stories using unconventional techniques and interesting angles, while creating that captivating feeling of presence when viewing his photos.
The photographs he makes are very environmental in the sense that he incorporates the natural lines, textures, patterns and light in the environment to help shape his compositions. Beyond his commissioned work (weddings, portraiture and events), he is a published street photographer with work featured in publications like the Baltimore Sun and The Bureau of Arts and Culture and on exhibit in several DC galleries.
