layers & surfaces

one of the most exciting things in tokyo for me, are the layering of the different architectures behind each other which is never ending. it starts with a small little bakery and ends with an insane 270m tall skyscraper, as long as you can see the horizon. the mix is so funny that tokyo becomes one of the funniest city surfaces in the world. the buildings are that high, that the sun is coming in a really steep angle along the day and throws strong shadows in the house canyons. i have a lot of neck pain from looking up all day long.

from tokyo with love, impressions below

.leftovers.

i made so many street captures that i can´t edit them all… so here are some leftovers which i can´t use for something but i think they are still amazing and showable. and it´s still the daily life of tokyo, thats whats happening here every second along the streets.  so now you can guess what an insane input here comes to your brain when you just go for a quick photo walk. and these are just some i picked from zillion others on my hard drive. but i think it´s ok for the moment to skip the people and show you some urban romantic in the future posts…. how about that?!

.big in japan.

in the year my wife gets born – japan went big. and now we´re here.

winter’s cityside 
crystal bits of snowflakes 
all around my head and in the wind 
i had no illusions 
that i’d ever find a glimpse 
of summer’s heatwaves in your eyes 
you did what you did to me 
now it’s history, i see 
here’s my comeback on the road again 
things will happen while they can 
i will wait here for my man tonight 
it’s easy when you’re big in japan 

aah when you’re big in japan-tonight
big in japan-be-tight
big in japan ooh the eastern sea’s so blue 
big in japan-alright
pay! – then i’ll sleep by your side 
things are easy when you’re big in japan 
oh when you’re big in japan 

neon on my naked skin, passing silhouettes 
of strange illuminated mannequins 
shall i stay here at the zoo 
or should I go and change my point of view 
for other ugly scenes 
you did what you did to me 
now it’s history I see 
here’s my comeback on the road again 
things will happen while they can 
i will wait here for my man tonight 
it’s easy when you’re big in japan 

aah when you’re big in japan-tonight
big in japan-be-tight
big in japan ooh the eastern sea’s so blue 
big in japan-alright, pay! 
then i’ll sleep by your side 
things are easy when you’re big in japan

.i don´t hate mondays.

we and the 36million people monster had a great monday. we went to the laundry, to the grocery store, the taylor, had amazing dinner (*) and the taste of living in here. shoot round about 400 people – still a few left – good prospect!

* incidental remark:

im totally addicted to ramen soups. this could be the reason for dying with overweight but i think i will start a business back in germany. i get you!

.moshimoshi nippon.

we made it to tokyo, japan. what a blast!! i will come to that later, because we are super tired and totally wasted. today was the first day and we just took the train to the inner city and strayed around.

it´s sooooooo sick! i´m really in love with the people, the urban romantic, the clean look and the massive surrounding.

pack some stuff and come as you are!

.coincidences are everywhere.

if you are open hearted, positive and wear nothing but a smile, they will find you and give you the joy of life. i think it depends on your own mood, negative feelings or attitudes will bring out negative pictures and the opposite way round. if you want to interact with other people on the streets, you have to be a mirror of themselves. and street photography is an interaction with your surrounding. it´s funny to try it and to see the result, i love it.

i watched a lot of matt stuart, joel meyerowitz and john free stuff in the past couple of days. and that is really inspiring for any photographer. don´t miss that if you are into it! and influenced from this strong words and the truth in it, i get some real shots that have a lot more strength in it, than any other street photography i made before. a new chapter opened in my book and i´m super stoked to write it – figuratively – to capture it, to try and to learn!

you have to understand and believe in what you are doing, otherwise your pictures will never reach another level of meaning.

if life is a joke, we could at least laugh a lot.
