Extraordinary Images of Everyday Life In Japan

(Nishishimbashi, Tokyo, Aug 2010 | Shin Noguchi)

I don’t know how I was able to pin point this, but the first time I picked up a camera and took on photography, I knew people would be my favorite subject. Humans can be their truest and honest self when no one is looking. More often times than not, I’ll be people watching and catch a glimpse of something that I wish I had my camera for. Instead, I’m left to savor that moment. It wasn’t meant to be to capture that shot. Now looking back on it, it’s probably one of the reasons why I gravitate so strongly towards shots with people in them for my A Collection posts. People are and have always been interesting to me.

Stumbling upon this post for Shin Noguchi’s “Something Here” series in Japan takes me back. They remind me of some of my older photographs – many that I have lost at this point by now, but evoke a lot of those same emotions for me.
