Tokyo told as a story
Dedicated to Yasujiro Ozu
At first I thought, I will release my shutter when the cars have stopped. But step by step, I began to shoot while things were moving.
Photography is not about framing a space, no. It is an art about framing time. Before and after every single photography frame, there’s a past and a future. These deleted futures and pasts lurk in the space between the frames. So you see, the spaces between each shot are not evenly empty, they spread out, overlap, swing.
At first I used a wide lens to shoot, but in the latter half, I gradually switched to a normal lens. People and subjects come floating out of the city landscape. On an emotional level, this gets me closer.
