Japanese magazine photo shoots often differ greatly from those of Chinese or Korean, in that the portrayal of models tend to demonstrate more of a real-life atmosphere for two possible reasons. The first is to bring out the emotional qualities of the magazine, and then to create a tangible feeling to which the readers can relate. Mikie Hara’s 原幹恵 latest Bomb Magazine shoot is a perfect example of how the magazine has achieved its objectives. Mikie Hara’s magazine shots portray a beautiful, possibly single woman in her mid-twenties drinking the night away, and just simply enjoying moments on her own. Can you, or your friends, relate to that?
