Hanabusa splits his time between Japan and France. In France he creates images reminiscent of the great French photographers, Jeanloup Sieff and Jean-Francois Jonvelle with European models and settings. In Japan, like many Japanese photographers, he pays the bills with vibrant photography of nude models and actresses. This is one of Hanabusa's most elegant nude model monographs - featuring one the most photographed women of all time. In fact, Kaori Shimamura has sold more photobooks than any other model in Japan. In the west she is most well known for appearing in one of the cult "Zero Woman" movies.
