Born in 1967. From a young age Yoshida had a keen interest in Western religious art as well as Japanese traditional paintings. Taking influences from Ukiyoe, Yoshida wanted to be a painter, however convinced by his grandfather he started to study architecture at Tama Art University.
Whilst at University, Yoshida was aware of the importance of photography especially architectural photography and especially French fashion photographers like Jeanloup Sieff. This prompted him to take a part time job in a photo studio during the summer holidays. This is where he found his true passion and never returned to university.
From 1989, Yoshida began working as a freelance photographic assistant gaining knowledge in various photographic genres, from 1994 he began specialising in portrait photography.
In 2011, Yoshida started the sharaku project with several photographers and began to exhibit his work. Initially taking inspiration from Ukiyoe and Japanese paintings, which are 2D and have no perspective, he began to question why this became universally popular.
