Wakasugi combines his photographs of fusuma sliding doors with images and scenes he has captured around the world, to create the Fusuma Photographs. Recently, Wakasugi is exploring new territories in photography by employing mixed media such as washi paper, sumi ink, gold leaf, gold powder, and flattened silver sheets into his works.
