Atsushi Sakai was born in Ishikawa Prefecture in japan in 1958. He graduated from Ritsumeikan University. He often went to the fishing village of Itoman on Kohamajima island in Okinawa for seven years from 1983, doing research. From 1983, he spent approximately seven years going to and from the fishing village of Itoman on Kohamajima island in Okinawa gathering information for research.
In 1989, he began traveling around Japan photographing sacred places and mummies (Japanese 'sokushinbutsu'). With the sokushinbutsu as his motif, 1995 saw exhibitions opened in Paris and Berlin focusing on the themes of life, death, and eroticism. From 1997, SM Sniper magazine began publishing his 'Shashin Hyakumonogatari' in its pages. 'Shashin Hyakumonogatari' are tales told in words and colored monochrome photographs inspired by old Japanese ghost stories.
At first, he set out to enact "Jasei no In"(Lust of the White Serpent) from Ugetsu Monogatari (Tales of Moonlight and Rain) by Akinari Ueda, and "Kouyahijiri" by Kyoka Izumi. Later, he started to create his own ghost stories and produced photographs to realize his vision. His work employs sepia coloring layed upon monochrome photographs and later applies yellow, green, and red ink which has been absorbed into cotton. He has recently been engaged in the production of books for children.
Works include: "Okinawa no Uminchu" (Shobunsha), ”Tenjin Gigaku - Ono Kazuo no Sekai" (Seikyusha), "Nihon no Miira Butsu o Tazunete" (Shobunsha), "Mokuren Ojisan" (Fukuinkan et al.),
" fantômes japonais "( Le Lezard Noir / Kurotokage) <in France in the fall of 2014>
