Views from Yoyogi-Uehara

This is the view from my old apartment in Yoyogi-Uehara. I considered it a nice apartment, and while this view was only accessible from the back stairs, I sometimes found myself hanging out in the stairwell, drinking a beer, and watching as the sun went down over Shinjuku in the distance. It certainly will be missed.

Aoyama with Natsuko

Natsuko and I were scouting the streets of Aoyama looking for places to shoot for a series for Shohei Apparel.

I was trailing behind as she walked ahead, just as she looked back to see why I was lagging, I shot this photo. I prefer capturing photos that happening organically.


Summer's Past

Shot on a rainy day in late July in Ito, Japan. Ito, located in Shizuoka prefecture, is a port town known for its naturally-occurring hot springs which swell underground and get tapped into the many onsens which dot the city. Ito is the perfect place for a weekend getaway from Tokyo, and I often head a few times a year for this very reason.
