The stories in this book are in the pictures. Not explicit, clear and obvious stories but seeds to your imagination.
Photography allows to isolate moments in space and time from the visual chaos of the banal environment.
It reflects the situation in a condensed way. .
Was my first project in street photography, mainly done in September 1999.
The series of images was shown as a personal exhibition in the Leica Gallery Solms in August 2003 and in the Leica Gallery Tokyo Ginza in February 2004.
Three times, in 2000, 2010 and 2012, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in Japan.
The outcome are impressions and moments of a fascinating urbanity in a foreign country.
With all my thanks and sympathy for the Japanese people.
