A Walk in The Woods

Business-wise based out of Singapore for the last 8 months. Been "home" again in Tokyo for 2 weeks and quickly OD'ed on Political Death Metal (Dying Fetus etc) and needed to surround me with some deep nature. A Tarp, a good book and a worthy knife and you can easily stay out here for days (a 5km hike to nearest convenient store for supply if needed...).

Demonic Squares

Shot this series with a Hasselblad 503cx, 80mm f/2.8, Kodak T-Max pushed 3 stopps. A small LED light helped out as well. Was looking to take it a bit further on the dark doomish side of this project and I think I got what I was looking for. Simple, direct and demonic.

T.Zero

















Original Street "Yankee" fashion on the streets of Tokyo. Don't ask me why it's called Yankee?! Some parts of this fashion style is pretty unique to Japan. Not only urban Japan but also the rural small cities and you might actually find a more dedicated and original style than these images above are all based on. Designer made tracksuits, lots and lots of Irezumi i.e. tattoos and an in general, in Japanese eye's anyways, the bad boy look. The totally original urban street cultures like Bozozuku and Deko-Tora (Decoration truck) falls in the same pocket. I love these cultural aspects of any society and to see it showing up more and more in an otherwise western focusing style trend this is cool and more original. Check the first issue of Tattoo ZERO for more.
