Toyokazu Nagano


Meet Toyokazu Nagano - or, more appropriately, meet his daughter Kanna.  After seeing a few of his photos featured on Huffington Post, I dug a little deeper into his Flickr page to see that the adorable antics of Kanna did not begin with the "Kiss Me Please" project.   Toyokazu does a fantastic job of capturing both themed moments of Kanna exuberantly playing with props as well as the slice of life moments everyone can recognize from their own childhood.  What is truly wonderful is how equally organic both the staged and everyday moments are - can you imagine the joyful, hushpuppy-esque squeal that must be ringing from her wide open mouth?
