Known for his highly finished style, photographer Shu Akashi has won accolades throughout North America, Europe and Asia for his eclectic and visually striking style. Over the last decade, Akashi’s body of work has placed him firmly at the forefront of his field, landing him global campaigns with luxury industry stalwart LVMH, Cartier, Shiseido and Comme Des Garcons to name a few. Still-life remains his primary genre, but true to his experimental nature, he has also ventured into beauty and fashion as well in the recent years. His varied clientele are proof that his inimitable style speaks across many genres to create timeless objets d’desire. Shu Akashi has developed a unique technique, marrying traditional photography and CGI, and thus opening a new world of creative possibilities. Born in Japan, Akashi maintains residences in London and New York, and divides his year between both cities.
