Yoshihiro Makino was born and raised in Tokyo, where the urban environment and eclectic culture both informed and inspired his photography path. Currently residing in Los Angeles, his work takes him around the world capturing interiors and portraits for a vast array of editorial, private, and commercial clients.
He co-produced the architecture and interiors book Lifecycling, which chronicles the lifestyles of creatives living in both Los Angeles and Tokyo in 2014, and considers the bilingual book a touchstone in his life’s work.
