Osaka. Huge industrial city. Busy.


Another view of modern Japan, in that it’s a city of contrasts; brutally, digitally modern alongside glimpses of a different life, more cultured and ordered. Much as it’s been for centuries.


Tech note; all images shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and either Fuji’s 23mm f1.4, or 35mm f1.4.


Eye note; the top of the image below is horizontal, despite what your eye(s) are telling you!

    I visited Japan 3 times about 10 years ago, and enjoyed the Japanese modernity. The Tokyo International Forum in Ginza was a beautiful sail-like convention centre with most of it’s space underground, a stark contrast to the UK’s bland concrete National Exhibition Centre. I never found the Japanese modernism and futurism “brutal” at all, since culturally they seem to believe that it will make their futures better, offset with a great deal of ritualised tradition to keep them grounded. “Brutal” is not a word I would use about Japan, it is a beautiful country, even the modern parts.
