I’m Davide Sasso and my greatest passions are photography and animation, in particular Japanese animation is the one that is closest to my heart and that surely inspired me as a photographer.

I have just finished my project in which the colors, the composition and the mood are strongly inspired by Japanese anime.

I adore the films of Makoto Shinkai, especially “Your Name” and “The Garden od Words”. I must say, however, that his other films, such as “5cm Per Second” and “The Place Promised in Our Early Days” have been a great source of inspiration for me.

I love the colors, the frame composition and the mood that you can feel in those movies.

I tried to replicate all this in my photos, taken totally in Italy.

I would like to continue this project in Japan, perhaps recreating the most beautiful frames of the films!
