There is something dark about the surreal self-portraits of Yutha Yamanaka, a photographer and graphic design student born in Tokyo, Japan. It has a lot to do with the fact that many of his images take place on grey days and that is style of editing focuses on the somber elements of his subject matter.

Not to mention that the surreal self-portraits often deal with imaginative interactions with rain clouds, black birds and fiery flames, all of which have an ominous undertone. Currently based in Bali, the young creative captures himself in lush landscapes, which give each image a mysterious story line that people are invited to flesh out themselves. They are equally beautiful and eerie.
