Hayahisa Tomiyasu - Silver Leipzig | Yokohama
Hayahisa Tomiyasu decided to photograph parked silver cars in two cities: Yokohama and Leipzig. In the series ‘Silver’, he arranges the images he took over the course of a couple of years as pairs of similar models. Oftentimes the make and year of the cars is almost identical. Interestingly, in his arrangement the parked cars always face each other, because Japan and Germany have opposing rules when it comes to the direction of traffic. The result is a rather subtle portrayal of cultural differences, which otherwise would recede into the background of what might come across as standard street photographs.
