COFFEE TABLE OF THE WEEK: TOKYO NOBODY
posted by Dolly on 2011.07.19, under Coffee Table Book of the Week
This week’s coffee table book, Tokyo Nobody, is a collection of Tokyo photographs by Masataka Nakano. If you’re a fan of Tokyo architecture or you’ve ever wondered what a city would look like devoid of people, this book is for you.
“For 11 years, photographer Masataka Nakano has kept watch for the most impossible of scenes: central Tokyo street scenes inhabited by nobody. These arenâ€™t manipulated composites but rather the result of a dedicated opportunist. Thereâ€™s something very eerie about these desolate moments and their startling absence of congestion, usually so integral to the portrayal of this environment.” (review from Multilink Magazine)
