Short Films Series
We have started making short films! By adding motion and music to a photo shoot, I'm adding 2 more dimensions to what's in my head when I'm doing a photo series. Does that make sense?
Check out the project here!!
Then let's go make one!
And we started making Mini Nudie Interviews!
tsurufoto is the photographical field observations, wanderings & creations of Aaron Tsuru! I use photography (analog, digital, and variations & combinations of both), short films, and zines to celebrate all things beautiful, weird, & wonderful, exploring our imperfections that make us unique and perfect in our own way.
DIY, through and through… Half the fun is figuring it all out through trials and many, many errors. Some of our greatest successes came out of massive failures. When an idea pops into my noggin’, I do what I can with the resources I have to make it real. It’s always worth trying.
Many of my works are expressed through nudity & sexuality. I’ve been drawn into that world ever since the days of squinting at scrambled 70s & 80s late night cable euro “art films”. Self-publishing a nudie zine, I walk a fine line between art & porn, but it’s a line that is fun to walk along, exploring and challenging our held definitions of beauty & sexuality…
I've been called an odd duck, an eccentric, or just plain weird (in a spastic geeky way), but I just like having fun! You only get one go at this life, might as well make the most of it, eh?
I love collaborating with the amazing women I work with, to try new things, have a ton of fun, and make some amazing photographs!

I'm extremely easy going and I'm willing to run around a good chunk of New York City to do shoots, so don't hesitate to ask if you are an hour or so out of the way!
