Nagi Sakai




Born in Tokyo and raised in Cairo, Nagi Sakai's eclectic
background lent him the opportunity to experience art in
several cultures at a young age. His expertise and
appreciation for creative expression and visual arts led
him to the Dutch Institute of Art to study painting at the
age 7.
At 16 Nagi knew he was destined for photography after
encountering famed Japanese photographer Naoki
Ishizaka. Nagi spent several years perfecting his craft
while assisting him for such clients as Issey Miyake,
Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons, to name a few.
Although completing his academic degree in Commerce,
Nagi's strict ambition brought him to New York in 2000
after signing on with his first agency.

Emerging strongly on the scene, Nagi Sakai's talents
have already been celebrated by such clients as Vogue Spain,
Vogue Ukraine, Vogue Paris Travel in France, Zoo Magazine,
Lovewant, Marie Claire Italia, The Edit, Dazed & Confused Korea,
Vanity Fair US, German GQ, Japanese GQ, V magazine, V man.

Gathering inspiration from the diversity of the arts, and
fueled by his passion to express strength in beauty and
sophisticated realism, Nagi Sakai's profession has
rapidly become his career.
