Issue #61 just came out with my images from the New York Asian Film Festival. Here is the Sion Sono spread:
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.
Shot with a Nikon D300 and either the 85mm f1.4 or 28-70mm f2.8
If you ever have the chance to see Mono, run. Do not walk.
Shot for Giant Robot 05.09.09.
