Travel from his home in Tokyo to cities and small villages across Asia, Ryosuke Kosuge is adept at recognizing the textures and patterns that inhabit local life, whether it be through the rock formations around Heaven’s Gate Mountain in Zhangjiajie, a series of bird cages created by a woman in Guizhou, or the wires that make up a market pull through in Nanning. His captivating images approach everyday moments from a place of curiosity and reveal the beauty and wonder inherent in both natural and urban environments. The photographer who works as the RK tells Colossal that he picks destinations based on the specific mood he wants to convey, though those choices are sometimes fueled by a personal desire to experience local customs and cuisine.
