During the span of a year, the paths of photographer and galerist Mark Pearson and self-portrait artist Tokyo Rumando lead them to share the same four cities at the same time.
"I have grown into the habit of taking photographs whenever and wherever I am. I had photographed Tokyo Rumando as part of this stream of images for several years in Tokyo.
An encounter in Hong Kong between Tokyo Rumando and Chris Shaw was the spark which turned
casual snapshots into a more coherent work, which had a life of its own and needed to be
concluded, in the process bridging Tokyo and Hong Kong, Paris and London, Asia and Europe.
It was not planned and it has no purpose that I can divine. It may have a meaning. It is part of my life with one woman during one year."
