It's Japanese Photography Day!

I really love these half-submerged shots by Asako Narahashi, from her series "Half Awake and Half Asleep in the Water." Found via Shoot!

Trying to find more info on her, I uncovered a few other great photographers from Japan. Like Miwako Iga's "Madame Cucumber" series with posed dolls:

Or Lieko Shiga, who photographs in the Netherlands, and took a series of photos with people outside some London apartments. Photographed using a black cloth and intense lighting, the effect looks a bit spooky:

Both of those c/o the Asian Photography Blog.
