Japanese Urban Landscape
Alan Thomas... Japanese Urban Landscape. "...Beyond the entertainment districts, the pachinko parlors, and the crowded department stores, Japanese cities are uncannily silent. Walking through their stillness, one begins to discern the peculiar geometries of urban Japan. These photographs take the measure of Japan’s spaces where they are most easily overlooked: the architecture of its back streets, the layered density of ordinary neighborhoods, the ephemeral effects of constant building and rebuilding."
