TOKYO VIVID

Tokyo has long fascinated the world. Located in a developed country, it forges its own unique path of evolution, unlike any other city anywhere. This is a peek at a photographer's view of "Now" in the world's largest city. Submerged in city streets, people frozen in a fraction of a second appear to be works of art, or characters in celluloid photos. Overflowing in vivid colors, the images might well portray the city's unique subculture as it is born and fades away each day. Indeed, a near future that nobody could have imagined exists here and now.
