Satoshi Saikusa was born in Japan in 1959. He moved to Paris in 1984 and two years later he began working as a publicity photographer. He quickly became known for his distinctive style. He proved to be extremely versatile, producing photos that perfectly envisaged different themes: sensual, glamorous, elegant and so on. His publicities soon got him noticed, as did his portraits and landscape photos. He famously worked with Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Loewe, Rochas and Cerruti. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Laeticia Casta, Monica Bellucci, Anna Mouglalis, Naomi Watts, Sophie Marceau, anne Hathaway, Catherine Deneuve… the most beautiful actresses in the world have posed in front of Satoshi Saikusa’s lens for magazines like Vogue, GQ, i-D and Harper’s Bazaar.

And my personal favorite is taken from his China Syndrome collection for W magazines in 1995. After more than 10 years...
