Night Crawler by Takehiko Nakafuji - British Journal of Photography

Night Crawler by Takehiko Nakafuji - British Journal of Photography | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Nakafuji recently published a two-volume book of photographs of nocturnal Tokyo called Night Crawler, the first volume containing images taken in 1995 and the second images taken in 2010. The combination shows changes in both the city and the man, evoking by turns the restless excitement and raffish charm of Tokyo’s underbelly, and a lonely, sombre place.

Behind the Cover: America’s Undocumented Immigrants | Photography Now | Scoop.it

This is not just a problem for Latinos, as we hear about often, but for every culture from around the world.”
