One of the many benefits of street photography is that you can regularly walk the same streets and still come away with different photos, as people provide almost infinite variety to an otherwise comfortingly familiar backdrop.
Tokyo being Tokyo, however, means that even the latter is prone to regular change, with demolition and regeneration a constant, often jarring occurrence. Yet on some occasions, the buildings remaining after the inhabitants have departed, can provide an even starker reminder of how transient life is, let alone the urban landscape.
On a different, and much more positive note, I’m very pleased to announce that my friend Giovanni and I have produced a photo book together. Tokyo Conversations is a unique, flip cover, 2 in 1 book featuring 20 colour and 20 monochrome photos. A visual, Tokyo focused back and forth we had over the course of several months.
In an attempt to get it published, we have just created a Kickstarter crowdfunding page, so if you’re interested, there is much more info, photos and also a little teaser video here: Tokyo Conversations.
