Beauty is bountiful, beauty is a-plenty. It's everywhere, in fact. You can find it in any continent, city, and person. Today we're focusing on the beautiful parts of Asia, in countries like Japan, Taiwan, China and Vietnam. The Japanese photographer Ryosuke Kosuge loves to travel around Asia and pick up these little gems as he goes, and today we're sharing his fascinating treasury of photos with you.

As a photographer, he's very versatile, and has a very good eye at picking up fascinating buildings, cityscapes, views, all the parts in between, and last but not least — the beautiful people that live there. His photos are full of splendid details where nature is meshed in with culture, there are all kinds of people bustling, or oppositely, living in calm harmony.

Beauty and simplicity...

The genre of photography that RK finds himself in is relatively new and very interesting. Ryosuke is credited as one of the influencers who helped found the "Dense" genre, which accentuates the intensity and density of Asian urban life, as the photos are boiling with action, many details, and riveting narratives. A couple of his most recognized works are "Grandpa of Akihabara Electric Town" and "Dense Collection of Taipei Bridge."

The Japanese photographer uses a SONY α7R III, a professional photo camera that costs over 2000 US dollars. He also has loads of lenses, but doesn't have a favorite one; he tends to use them according to the situation. The scenes of Mt. Fuji that you see on the top of the list were done with a zoom lens, which shifts the perspective and makes the mountain look even bigger. Even though he likes shooting both architecture and people, if he had to choose only one of them, he'd definitely choose people.

This is so aesthetically pleasing.

As you might suspect, RK experiences wanderlust rather often, and he'd definitely want to visit the entire world. Even though today's post focuses on Asia, he has plenty of photos from Europe and the USA, as well as other countries. He always wants to take new fascinating photos from a country that he's never been to. The saying "it's not about the goal, but the journey" fits him very well, as he doesn't have a favorite place to photograph.

I love this photo.

He loves researching the locations that he's shooting, but often decides what he's going to do when he gets there. Like most of us, he uses the internet and books to determine the location. RK's favorite time of the day to shoot is between dawn, sunset, and night, when the sky is still blue and the lights turn up; it creates a vivid and saturated image. His favorite time of the year is from spring to summer, and the beautiful images of sakuras and other plants in bloom are a testament to this.

I see a smiling face on that building. ♡ Definitely a smiling face wearing a samurai warrior helmet.

They were on the ground before. Granny needed to sweep, and they all got out of her way as a matter of respect.
