2018 TAKOYAKI (In Production), A documentary film by Dab Art.
Edgar Takoyaki developed his passion for photography after documenting his first visit to Japan with a point-and-shoot camera in 2005. In the years since, Edgar has studied the technical side of photography while developing his distinctive style. His subjects are varied, from portraiture and travel photography to elaborately staged sci-fi-noir scenes. Much of his work reflects the influence of Japanese culture and science fiction, and is distinguished by a dark, atmospheric quality that suggests a larger story behind each image.
Edgar has shown his work at a number of solo and group exhibitions in California, and he has earned international recognition in recent years. In 2012, he was presented the Jury Award of Merit (Landscape) in the International Fine Art Photography Contest Grand Prix de la Couverte. He was also invited to London as an exhibitor in the Life-Framer Alternative Lives Exhibition in 2014.
Edgar currently lives in Ventura with his wife, three cats, and robot companion.
