Tokyo based photographer Irwin Wong has spent a lot of time chronicling traditional Japanese artisans.
He has produced several videos for German lensmaker Zeiss documenting these subjects.
I got to tag along to one of his shoots recently, and provide some establishing aerial shots in the beautiful old town of Kasama in Ibaraki, where he tells the story of a dynasty of potters.
I also provided some of the ground cinematography for this video, under his direction.
The skill and dedication of this craftswoman is incredibly apparent in this beautifully shot video, so please check it out!
Irwin has produced a large number of these videos for Zeiss, and I have helped out with the cinematography on several of them, which can be seen below.
