Yota Yoshida (1981) is a Photographer. He grew up in a small town in north Kumamoto and currently resides in Tokyo Japan. As any father would do, he first bought a camera only to take family photos, after his daughter was born. Later on, he started shooting on the streets from around 2015, since that was what he was most familiar with.
Recent awards include 1st Place of ND Awards, Honorable Mention of Brussels Street Photography Festival, and Finalist of Miami Street Photography Festival and others. His works have been featured in numerous mediums including Vice, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Juxtapoz Magazine, Fubiz, iGNANT, It's Nice That, Lomography and more.
