The localities seen in these photographs are of the area in which I live. Some areas I actually set out to photograph, but for the most part, they are photos of my own neighborhood of Kugayama (Suginami Ward) and Shinjyuku, where I might meet with friends or walk around to visit various photography exhibits. The latter half in particular, are concentrated in the Kugayama area.
These photographs were shot in December 2009 and summer 2010.
