Though it may not be summer where you’re currently living, you can still stare at these Mutsumi Makino photographs and reminisce about all the frolicking you did when the weather was perfect. That’s because each one of these delightful still frames by the up-and-coming Japanese photographer manages to capture a sense of warmth and comfort that’s equatable to the sun’s rays.

She may have only began taking snap shots of the world surrounding her at age 22, but Mutsumi Makino has quickly risen to become a high demand photographer, with her pictures being published in a variety of magazines and displayed in galleries around the world.

One truly inspiring aspect about Makino’s photographs is that her subjects’ environments are equally as important to each composition as the subject itself. It makes for images that tell expansive and rich narratives.
