One of my favorite single series is Daido Moriyama’s book of wanderings in the Shinjuku neighborhood of Tokyo. Viewing his fractured, scattered, shattered images is to embark on a journey as a furtive outsider, stalking the streets, seeking prey in alleys, noodle shops and sex bars.
As long as I can walk, I will continue wandering the streets.
I want to express the realness of Japan. I want to show what is really going on.
I’m not always a stray dog. Sometimes I’m a cat or an insect.
The streets are my territory and I still wander them aimlessly with my camera.
