Portrait of an Endangered Species

Kenji Aoki took this magnificent shot of a live 5 ft. bluefin tuna for a New York Times cover story. The body of the fish looks incredible, almost like we're looking at the earth from outer space.

Aoki does not rely on retouching and his work requires minimal post production. He recently moved from Tokyo to New York in early November 2010.
