Japanese Photographer Spends His Life Shooting Women’s Thighs

Introducing Yuria, a mysterious Japanese photographer who makes a living by taking photos of women’s thighs (“futomomo” in Japanese) – over 30,000 photos to be precise. Yuria is a self-proclamed “Futomomo Artist“.

Yuria is a meticulous person, with two strict rules when it comes to photography. First, he never takes photos of a model’s face. Second, he shoots nothing but women’s thighs, with the aim of spreading the true beauty of futomomo, “the area that holds the beauty of a woman“, to the world. Yuria prefers models who have thighs that are “not too thin, not too chubby, but slightly on the thinner side”.

In case you were wondering, it is unclear whether “Yuria” (assumed to be a nickname) is male or female. In addition to Yuria’s name and gender, his/her hometown and date of birth are also kept a secret. It is only known that Yuria has a Russian blue-coloured cat called “Rua” that he/she posts on Twitter, and that he/she likes the anime Aikatsu.

Yuria grew motivation to take thigh photos back in 2011, when he happened to take a photo of a female acquaintance’s thigh. This lit a fire in Yuria’s heart; five years, seven books and two exhibitions later, he has become a national phenomenon.

Polish Stalkers Turned The Lights On In Pripyat, 31 Years After Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

Pripyat is a radioactive ghost town just outside Chernobyl, the site of the infamous nuclear disaster in 1986. Deep within the Exclusion Zone, the city has been permanently evacuated. Because of the contamination, officially you can’t live there, although 200 or so defiant oldster locals still do. They just kept on going back to their houses until the officials gave up.

Disaster junkies and radioactivity enthusiasts flock from all over the world to make their nuclear pilgrimage to Chernobyl. There’s a shuttle from Kiev, frequent official tours, even a hotel you can stay overnight in.

The group tags itself “Naprowmieniowani.” The expedition, and its associated photoset, have been making their way rapidly through Russian-language social media.

“We wanted to prove that if Soviet technology doesn’t fail instantly, it’ll last forever,” they declared.
