Damn it feels good to be a zinester!
tsurufoto is the photographical field observations, wanderings & creations of Aaron Tsuru!

DIY, through and through… Half the fun is figuring it all out through trials and many, many errors. Some of our greatest successes came out of massive failures. When an idea pops into my noggin’, I do what I can with the resources I have to make it real. It’s always worth trying.
Many of my works are expressed through nudity & sexuality. I’ve been drawn into that world ever since the days of squinting at scrambled 70s & 80s late night cable euro “art films”. Self-publishing a nudie zine, I walk a fine line between art & porn, but it’s a line that is fun to walk along, exploring and challenging our held definitions of beauty & sexuality…
