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).
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.
Little experiment. Faces of Tokyo on white.
Caught him early one evening on the way home.
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.
Well, government men but they are not really G-men as referred to in Wikipedia (FBI). When I shot this the hasselblad back was dying and was causing a lot of overlapping of frames. I like the picture but have never used it cause of the overlap at the top of the frame. Obvious solution if not very pure.
Looking for a way to escape, he looks back only to discover the best possible route blocked.
See this kind of thing every day. Hard to photograph at this angle though.
Part of a series. From the archives.
This one is definitely making it into the exhibition. It's the odd shot like this that makes lugging that camera around every day worth while (or almost ;-)
