The Other Side of Tokyo,Japan Alley,Wall&Facade series
I feel beauty in the cluttered modeling that is unordered.
It can be said to be "the beauty of natural modeling born from necessity".
In order to transform the seemingly ugly scenery into a beautiful scenery, I w
ould like to convey it in a simple and easy to understand manner through the m
edium of black and white film photography.
I was born in Gifu,Japan in 1969, grew up in Osaka and Aichi prefectures, and now live in Tokyo.
I started black and white film photography when I was 10 years old.
Until I was about 25 years old, I carried around a film camera and took street snapshots both in Japan and overseas.
After that, I moved to digital photography and only used it in my real estate job.
I have resumed black and white film photography about three years ago, and I am working hard to produce photographs as a "The Other Side of Tokyo, Japan" photography project.
One of the most visually compelling portfolios submitted, this series of images of the back alleys of Ginza offers an alternative vision of a neighbourhood associated with high fashion and glamour. Striking high contrast black and white photographs evoke the historic masters Ishimoto and Issei Suda.
