Photographer Ryosuke Kosuge Capures The Kengo Kuma-Designed Bookshelf Theater In The Kadokawa Culture Museum

Published 3 years ago

The Kadokawa Culture Museum is a Tokyo-based cultural complex that opened its doors just last year. The complex houses many temporary and permanent exhibitions, as well as natural history and anime museums. However, one of its most impressive attractions has to be the Bookshelf Theater – an enormous library with eight-meter tall bookshelves designed by Kengo Kuma that contains over 50,000 publications from various Japanese publishers and private collections. Recently, this impressive Bookshelf Theater was captured by Japanese photographer Ryosuke Kosuge, aka RK, and the photos are absolutely breathtaking.

In a recent interview with DeMilked, Ryosuke  said he has been into photography for about 6 or 7 years and initially started out shooting and editing using nothing more than his iPhone.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
