A series of photos sees Japanese dads jumping next to their daughters
They are part of a new book by Japanese photographer Yûki Aoyama
The book’s title roughly translates as Daughter and Salary Man
Sick of awkward father-daughter portraits? Well one photographer has found an effective – if a little odd – way of making them more interesting.
Japanese photographer Yûki Aoyama’s latest series of images capture po-faced teenagers pictured next to their fathers leaping into the air.
In each picture the daughter looks directly into the camera smiling while her father pulls a dramatic pose.
The images are from the 37-year-old’s latest book which roughly translates into Daughter and Salary Man.
According to the photographer’s website the images allow the father who usually has to act serious to express his fun side by being ‘a hero jumping the sky, enfold(ing) strong excitement and hope.’
Salary man may refer to the choice of clothing in the shoot which sees each dad in a sharply dressed suit.
The images see the fathers pull energetic poses despite their age with some of the expressions of the older fathers looking slightly pained.
Very little else is known about the pictures or why they have come into existence but they are already drumming up plenty of interest online for their curious nature.
