Japanese photographer Kouichi Chiba takes beautiful photos that remind us you don’t need expensive or even particularly uncommon supplies to create art that delights and touches people.

Koichi places sweet and playful paper characters in a variety of environments, some natural, some urban, to create charming photos that feel like tender glimpses of a fragile little world existing inside our own that are completely endearing. Whatever they’re doing, naping, undertaking daring adventures, or just walking their dogs, his paper people are enjoying their lives.

Visit Kouichi Chiba’s 500px page to view more of his enchanting photos.

Objective gender

  • French: This chair is feminine! "La Chaise!"
  • Italian: This chair is feminine! "La sedia!"
  • German: This chair is masculine! "Der Stuhl!"
  • English: This chair is a fucking object, I don't see a skirt or a pair of trousers anywhere on its cold hard surface, you people are fucking insane.
  • Japanese: If you don't pronounce chair exactly right, you'll end up saying testicles instead.
