Hisaji Hara and Natsumi Hayashi are a Japanese photography duo. Before starting working together, they worked individually in Tokyo as photographers since 2009 on the series such as After Balthus (A Photographic Portrayal of the Paintings of Balthus) and Today's Levitation respectively. After experiencing the Great East Japan Earthquake and the subsequent nuclear disaster in 2011, they had moved out from Tokyo to Southern part of Japan and started working together as a duo. Since then, they have been working on the series called Gazing Into the World which mainly focuses on collaborating with local children in Kyushu Island where the duo currently is based in. Their work is collected by several museums around the world.
