Staying on the Japan tip from last Friday, here’s another nice photo set to peep at.
For 11 years, photographer Masataka Nakano has kept watch for the most impossible of scenes: central Tokyo street scenes inhabited by nobody. These aren’t manipulated composites but rather the result of a dedicated opportunist. There’s something very eerie about these desolate moments and their startling absence of congestion, usually so integral to the portrayal of this environment.
Hats off to Matt for pointing this stuff out to me.
