TOKYO WORKING CLASS

Tokyo street photography – 2019

In my mind, Tokyo pictures somehow the apex of human civility. Past, present, and future coexist in a space-time bubble that is the perfect representation of the aspirations, achievements, and failures of our species. The vastness of the city and the grandeur of the infrastructure are in stark contrast to the human dimension, yet it is only thanks to the ingenuity and tireless industriousness of the human being that all this exists. With this flaneur I wanted to browse the remote corners of the city, looking for the main characters of the proverbial Japanese industriousness, the Tokyo working class.
