Fragments of Tokyo Exhibition at Place M 12-18 November 2012

So I guess this is me advertising the exhibition I am part of. Place M

所在地:東京都新宿区新宿1-2-11 近代ビル3F

http://www.placem.com/schedule/2012/20121112/121112.html

12-18 November 2012. 12pm - 7pm every day.

I'll be there on the 17th and 18th all day. The goal of the exhibition for me I guess is to use this as an excuse to meet people. So feel free to stop by and say hello. I'll be showing a little set I've had stashed away for a long time now. Time to let them see the light of day. Other members:

The Chair series

Took the same train to work for two years and started to notice the different thing's people did while seated in a chair that seemed to be quite out of the way of any trains. What I like about the collect is the randomly different thing's most people are doing at any one time. The series has only been edited to keep the basic format the same (seems I shot more using 35mm than asselblad 120).

Salary man

I was about to post a similar but lesser image and realized that this shot was not in my main 50mm.jp collection. What an omission! Shot using a Voigtlander Bessa R2A I have tried to repeat this shot countless times with other cameras with no success. This image really describes how Tokyo can feel sometimes or at least feel to the locals.

Subway collapse

Subway collapse

From an ongoing series that doesn't seem to have a beginning or an end. This guy at first glanced looked drunk but after closer inspection seemed to have something else wrong with him.This was taken at about 8:45am which, as you can see from the onlookers reaction, gained a bit of attention. He managed to get on the train and pass out again and then somehow remembered his station and got off only to pass out again on the platform. Never a dull moment in Tokyo.
