Michael Yamashita

Renowned National Geographic photographer Michael Yamashita has spent over 30 years travelling and photographing in Asia. His photographs have been published and exhibited worldwide, with his documentaries among the most successful and widely viewed of all National Geographic’s works.


Yamashita’s photographs cover such diverse topics as the journeys of Marco Polo and Zheng He, the Great Wall of China and almost every aspect of Japanese life from the journeys of Basho to the fish markets of Tokyo. A true master of his craft, Yamashita is inspired by such legendary 20th century photographers as Henri Cartier-Bresson, the father of photojournalism, and colour photography visionary Ernst Haas.
