A masterclass of Japanese photographers Nagase Shota and Naoyuki Ogino was held at Elite Plaza business center within the framework of the Armenian International Photo Fest.

Photographers spoke about the secrets of their technique, style and said they were really impressed by Armenia.

“It is a great honor for me to participate in this festival. I am very glad that some of my works that carry the power of Japanese paper will remain in your beautiful capital city, which is more than 2800 years old,” said Nagase Shota, who has been photographing Japanese nature for ten years.

His works differ because the photographer prefers to print them on Japanese paper, which gives a more sophisticated and natural look to such landscapes.
