Photographer Naoki Honjo has enjoyed popularity for his outstanding diorama effect photography. Refining his personal method once developed for his book “Small Planet” (winner of the Kimura Ihei Award), Honjo has now captured Tokyo as the clouds in the sky might see it. Countless buildings cover the ground like a large, endless foundation, spreading out far into the distance - a megacity.
As Tokyo is nearing the 2020 Olympics, the speed of the city’s famous “scrap and build” process has only picked up in speed, and if you forget to pay attention, well-known views change within the span of days.
A view from above on Tokyo, that wondrous city that knows no final form.
An exciting new look at Tokyo, Japan’s capital city, from a photographer who continues to capture the city’s spirit in images.
