These photos were taken using film toy cameras (Golden Half & Superheadz Ultra Wide) in the Kansai region of Japan (specifically Okayama, Kyoto, Oosaka). The photos have recurring theme: backs faced to the camera, eliciting a “this is what you see if you were there through your eyes” effect. I wanted to show Japan through the musings of everyday life, not in a sensationalized manner, but with mute tones of color and that gives viewers a nostalgic feeling.
