After more than year of silence for various reasons, I’m writing a post on this blog. I’m ready to share again some of the pictures I shot in the previous months. In November I went to Hong-Kong, my first vacations alone, and when I went through my pictures of Hong-Kong I realized I managed to shoot quite a lot of picture with only one person in the frame. When you know that Hong-Kong has the one of the highest density of population in the world, I find this quite odd but the pictures resume perfectly my vacations : alone, but still, surrounded by millions.

This place is just unbelievable and had a great time walking in the busy streets with my Leica around my neck trying to capture the unique atmosphere of this city/country. After visiting Japan I’m definitely so in love with Asia. Within a few minutes of walking you can go from the super crowded and oppressing modern neighborhoods, to quiet and traditional areas.

Shot with my Leica M6, on Kodak TriX 400, Portra 400 and Fuji Superia 400. Processing and scanning made by Carmencita Film Lab.

Tokyo is a huge city, 13 millions live in the capital and you reach 35 millions people if you add the suburbs. So while walking around, you will see millions of looks : traditional, classy, street, vintage, normcore, gothic and the list is endless. Some of the looks can only be rocked in Tokyo, otherwise you will be stared at like you are an alien.

 

Some of these pictures of the people of tokyo are slightly out of focus or not so well exposed, but street photography is really hard (I need a 24 or 28mm lense), I had to deal with tough lighting for most of my stay in Tokyo, and I wanted to show as many people as possible.
