Finished a series I’ve been doing in Tokyo and Kyoto recently, Infinite Street.
It will be part of The Monochrome Set – series and printed as journals the coming months. Here’s the link…
Some photographs from the series:
Trying to get this organised as a brand new series… More later.
I went on a short trip to Japan 2 weeks ago and while in Shinjuku Tokyo I walked around Golden Gai which is very photogenic especially nighttime. I spent some time at the photographer’s bar Kodoji. One of the guests inside was the famous photographer Daido Moriyama. His work has inspired me since I got hands on his book Shinjuku 19XX-20XX about 16 years ago.
Earlier that day I visited Daido’s exhibition Uwajima at Akio Nagasawa Gallery.
Been working on a new series called UNFINISHED REALITIES here in Siem Reap. Shooting with the medium format film (6×6) Mamiya camera. The series is about the changing landscape in temple town (Siem Reap/Angkor) with new developments coming up. Shooting in the same style as the American Landscape series I did in the 90s inspired by the New Topographic Movement (Lewis Baltz, Stephen Shore, Robert Adams..)
Here a preview (a glimpse) of what have been done so far…
