Graphic Designer Takes Quirky Photos Of Himself ‘Flying’ On A Broomstick

Graphic designer Daisuke Kujiraoka—also known as Halno—is being hailed as the ‘Japanese Harry Potter’.

It’s not hard to see why.

The Tokyo-based designer takes quirky photos of himself ‘flying’ on a broomstick.

His interesting photo series began a few years ago with friends that he met through Instagram.

He said, “We were exploring aesthetics that would be fun for us to shoot, and the broomstick levitation captures eventually became my trademark.”

Last February, he met up with an Instagram celebrity—a half-grown Shiba Inu named Maru, accompanied by his owner Shinjiro Ono.

He said, “Collaborating with animals is something we’ve never done before, and working with Maru allowed us to explore new ways of expressing our world.

“We told Shinjiro about the images we had in mind, and Maru just followed Shinjiro’s instructions. It was impressive to see how much friendship, love and trust exist between the two.”
