Half Japanese, half Swedish photographer David Favrod meshes his two heritages together for an amazing portfolio. Born in Japan and raised in Sweden, he brings his Asian roots to his European surroundings -- and the result is spectacular.

David Favrod was inspired to create 'Gaijin,' which means 'foreigner' in Japanese, after he was rejected from obtaining a dual citizenship. Straddling a culturally-defined limbo line, photography became his outlet. Check out his photographic coping mechanisms in the featured gallery.
