50 Tokyo taxi tops

Los Angeles Times Magazine has a cool gallery of 50 Tokyo taxi cab tops by photographer Alexander James, which are also on view at Ann 330 Gallery in LA.

Alexander explains “I want to capture that light play with the energy and bustle of city life and the stillness of individual with it” Which is why Alexander has been wandering the streets of Tokyo for over a decade capturing the raw energy of Tokyo and the many untold stories unfolding in the night. ‘With many of the images, subjects appear floating in a black space that neither interferes nor disrupts the subject matter. In fact the collaboration within this void offers a serene and dreamlike sensation with images broken into positive and negative spaces open to you, the viewers own interpretation.

This can be filed in the folder “Reasons to visit Japan ASAP.” You’ll also find “Zombie meat” in this folder.
