We all have that one photo taken from a vacation or getaway that we see as "ruined" just because a stranger got into a frame. Well then, wait until you meet Sari in Tokyo. We bet she’ll change your mind.
We’ve stumbled upon this quirky photo series, With Sari in Tokyo by Japanese art student Sari Yamagishi over the weekend, and we have to be honest, we think it’s awesome.
Following the idea of “photobombing”, Yamagishi wanders around Tokyo in search of tourists (a relatively easy task) and then asks if she could be included in one of their photos. And while the results are funny and charming, it can also be viewed in a different direction.
“Placing myself in their pictures, I pretend like I’m a friend or a member of the family, but I tell and make them pretend I don’t exist in the pictures first. […] There is obviously a “wall” between the groups and I, which means we have a totally different existence even if I act like very friendly. — Sari Yamagishi
Nonetheless, it would prove to be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
