"I first came to Tokyo in 1998 on a skateboarding tour, and then again two times in 2001, first for a big citywide art exhibition called "Untitled 2001" and then again as a skateboarder later that year. Those first visits to Tokyo were full of walking and wandering and photographing in the streets when I wasn't skateboarding. Then in 2016 I came back to Tokyo as a tourist after a long absence. These more recent trips have been more focused on shooting photographs and observing the life and rhythms of the people of Tokyo. I like to find moments that speak to human existence and specifically to the customs and rituals of life in Tokyo."
These photographs were taken during seven trips to Tokyo between the years 1998 and 2018, with the majority being shot between 2016 and 2018. "City Confessions #1: Tokyo" is the initial installment of Ed Templeton's new and ongoing series that will each feature a selection of photographs from an individual city the photographer has spent significant time working in and exploring. The "City Confessions" books will ultimately be gathered and slipcased together as a set, so don't miss out on this first volume!
