Weekend Video




Thanks to the anonymous sender of the link to the above video. It gives a nice sense of the magic feeling of being in Tokyo. And thanks to the film-maker, Emily Nathan. (Please note: it may take a moment to load.)

Thank you for sharing this--a little vacation for those of us who won't be able to afford a trip to Japan anytime soon...

Great reception last night. Very encouraging to see the fine art photography scene being cultured here again. There was a second in the bubble years where this was happening. Parco Gallery (Motoo san), Verso (Sakagawa san) and random photo-based shows (David Bryne, Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman etc). It all kind of dissipated when the bubble burst.

On another note, if you'd like to try something more fulfilling than what comes out of a vending machine...
Higashiya is not far from the venue. Lovely spot for tea and wagashi (Japanese sweets), as well as nihonshu (sake), shochu (spirits) and so on.

I have dreamed of visiting Tokyo for more than 20 years now and hope to fulfill that dream before another 20 have gone by. In the meantime, wonderful videos such as this let me travel vicariously. Thanks for sharing.
