For Giant Robot, I had the great task of shooting director Sion Sono and actor Eiji Okuda, both of whom were in town for the Asian Film Festival here in New York. Sion’s film “Love Exposure” won the Grand Jury Prize. Both men have great style, but Eiji’s face in particular invites some Leone-type landscape / close-ups.
