Celebrities Pose for Playful, Stylized Photos

| Photography , Design

Art director Yuni Yoshida has an ongoing series in Japanese fashion magazine Soen in which she collaborates with different celebrities for an artful spread called “Play a Sensation.” Currently in its 38th iteration, each month, Yoshida turns her creativity to a different Japanese celebrity, rendering them into works of art using mostly analog techniques. Some are utterly simple, leaving you wondering, "why didn’t I think of that?" While others are meticulously crafted to a level verging on compulsion.

Each month a new spread appears in the magazine but you can learn more about the artist's works at Spoon & Tamago below.
