inhabiting the global anonymous

Still from a photo essay for the HOGI scholarship, exploring the integration of global trends at a local level on the streets of Tokyo…critically looking in and up.

All in all- quite a trip!

This particular stil intrigues me, given its overtones of motion- displacement from the right to the left…the leaving behind of traditional architecture and moving onwards to the left of the frame…with an unapologetic, matter of factly incorporation of one way of living unto the other.

Nowhere else in the world have these transitions been so seamless, but Tokyo- the psyche of this city of rebirth, having risen from its ashes too many times- it yields, it imbibes, and just goes on and on and on and on…
