Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

@julie & alexa: Yurie was a wonderful person to be with, too. A sparkling personality. Like a bottle of Champagne that has just been opened. I really enjoyed the shoot.

It is interesting to see Yurie’s full body shot among the other shots on the photoblog page. She really stands out. For Japanese standards Yurie is rather tall, 168cm. The average height for Japanese women of 19 years old (close to Yurie’s 21) is 158cm. Considering she is Japanese, Yurie has very long legs; that’s why the mini looks so good on her.

かわいいよ!!There is something REALLY interesting about her. She kind of seems like a model type. Her eyes are stunningly beautiful. WOW.

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, I think she’d be able to get work as a model. But Yurie told me that she has no confidence. Don’t you love her eyes!

I love those shoes! She is beautiful as well.

I thought she was a model! @Kjeld: Has no confidence? Were your eyes open when you took these shots? From an outsiders view, she was probably just being modest!

Jun 25, 2010 (3163 days ago)

@Mel: LOL. No, I usually photograph with my eyes closed. ;-) Actually, she is used to being photographed because she is a dancer. What I meant is that she said she has no confidence to be a model. If it was just modesty, she was very convincing...

Something about her smile tells me she must have been a joy to work with. :3 And what a great retro-sexy style!

Jun 25, 2010 (3163 days ago)

Jun 26, 2010 (3163 days ago)

Jun 26, 2010 (3162 days ago)

@Raza: Maybe I should try to shoot her again…

Kjeld Duits (photographer)
Jun 26, 2010 (3162 days ago)

@Kjeld: Ha, did she tell you what kind of dancing she does? Also, I love the shoes, and the teddy bag is an unusual touch in contrast to the rest of her outfit.

Jun 27, 2010 (3161 days ago)

@kjeld yes definitely …. i’ll be looking forward to this:D

Jun 28, 2010 (3161 days ago)

She is so cute !

Jun 28, 2010 (3160 days ago)

@Mel: I don’t think she told me. When I concentrate on shooting I occasionally don’t hear everything people tell me…

I’m wondering what brand of contacts she uses.

Jun 28, 2010 (3160 days ago)

@Meg: I guess she does use contacts, doesn’t she! I hadn’t noticed at all…

i love your watch is cooll
im mexican girl iloved the culture japanise

Jun 29, 2010 (3160 days ago)

@Kjeld Duits: Wow, it sort of tore my heart in two when you said she said she didn’t have the confidence to….this girl is really cute! And out of curiosity, what is the model height for girls in Japan?

Jun 30, 2010 (3159 days ago)

@Etsune: I think this shoot has actually given Yurie much confidence. Yesterday she asked me for advice about modeling. I think the minimum height for Japanese models is probably around 160 cm, although it really depends on the needs of the client.

@Kjeld Duits: Really??? That’s AMAZING! I’m so happy for her!! So does that you keep in contact with the people you photograph?

Jun 30, 2010 (3158 days ago)

@Etsune: We always send a message to everybody that their photos have gone live, and to thank them again. Sometimes, people contact us again after that.

@Kjeld Duits: Do you message them on facebook?

Jul 1, 2010 (3158 days ago)

@Etsune: No, we have the e-mail address of each person we photograph.

@Kjeld Duits: Ohhhhh! Have you guys ever photographed really cool looking foreigners?

Jul 1, 2010 (3157 days ago)

@Etsune: No, the mission of JS is to introduce Japanese fashion and designers to the world.

Oh she is sooo cute! Love her style :)
Nice blog you have. :)

Jul 4, 2010 (3155 days ago)

Wow, she really does stand out. She seems very fresh and so does her style – a little twist without being over-done. And great legs ;)
I hope you get to shoot her someday again!
