This is some recent colour work taken in Tokyo and Saitama. The second, third and forth images are printed from cross-processed Fuji Velvia 100. Velvia gives a strong red cast. It’s a bit strong for my taste really but it works well if you have a simple image. The rest of the images were printed from Fuji Natura 1600.
Both the negatives and the prints were developed with the Naniwa color kits. The paper used was Kodak Endura. All the images you can see are scans of the prints.
This short series is from a collection I had built up over last year. Some of the portraits are of people I had met, and the others are merely chances which I chose to capture. I prefer the flatter perspective portraits in the collection over anything else. They just feel more simple.
Here are a few photos which are outtakes from an old series. All of them were taken with a digital SLR. I feel that digital has it’s place, but I am very bias towards film as I think it is more romantic and fulfilling in some way.
Again the photos are a typical view from western eyes. I think when people think of Tokyo they expect to see these kinds of images. It is for this reason that they may seem a little mediocre but maybe you can still enjoy them.
This is a short series I did in Tokyo called ‘Dancing stranger’. The first three are shot with black and white negative and the rest are digital. I like all of the photos, but I think the first three seem to be stronger.
