►An interesting blend of photography and illustration by Wataru Yoshida. The artwork comprises of human/animal anatomy sketches that are superimposed on photographs, looking into complexities and intricate structure of mammal's body.
Wataru Yoshida born in Tokyo, Japan in 1987 and has recently graduated from Tama Art University. Anatomy of Mammals is Wataru's graduation project and semi-finalist in Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2011 under photography. He was a finalist in 2010 in the same award for illustration.
"A series of photographs which aim is to show a pure fascination for the mysterious and delicate qualities of the Mammals Anatomy. The motive for the series of Photographs, "Composition of Mammals", is to show the complex and interesting structure of the Mammals body. I came up with an idea of mock exhibition, "The Composition of Mammals", which studies the anatomy of mammals with displays of taxidermy and skulls. These photographs were used by this exhibition poster. I tried to visually explain the contests of the show, by incorporating mu diagram-like illustrations of bone structures and photographs that I took and edited myself. This project was my graduation work at Tama Art University."
