Thank you for your responses, Takaumi!

From a quick glance at his Instagram, his stream just looked different. The subjects he shoots are quite mundane, yet it is the way he shot them and edited them together. There are repeating images, bad negative scans, severely out of focus shots with perfectly focused unrelated ones, all of which people do but there is an evident curation to it. Perhaps it is that his work is so well curated that it doesn’t come off that way, similar to the notion that the best design is designless… but intriguing either way! A lot of this shows in his responses above! Check his links below:
