Glowing wedding photos by Samm Blake. Blake traveled to Tokyo to document Takako and Steve’s traditional Shinto-style wedding (followed by a western style reception). I love the attention to details.
Thanks to Shoko for sharing!

The artist explains, “As an artist, I find a lot of my inspiration from the weird and unusual. I came across a Wikipedia page about final meal requests before prisoners were executed. I’m originally from New Zealand and, like a lot of foreigners, find the concept of the death penalty still existing in the U.S. really strange. Without needing to take a point of view on the right or wrong of the original crime, sentence, or possibility of a miscarriage of justice, for a brief moment I was able to identify with the person who would request this kind of a meal as their last on Earth,” and he follows by saying, “Hopefully with these images, you will be able to think about the condemned man as an individual. I hope that people can look beyond the crime, and stir some empathy for another human being.”
