Sato Shintaro - The Origin Of Tokyo


Publisher Seigensha

ISBN 9784861527227

Idea Code 19322


After starting out as a news photographer, Shintaro Sato has worked as a freelance photographer since 2002. His work is themed around the distinctive atmosphere (the “soul”) of Tokyo. Geological features influence the way cities are designed, and the combination of human activities, the history of the land itself, and the history of the city that grows upon it eventually generates this atmosphere. With its stunning urban scenes and panoramas photographed from high viewpoints, always at dusk or night, this book is a supplement to Sato’s earlier publication ‘Tokyo Twilight Zone’ (2008), a collection of photographs capturing scenes of Tokyo from emergency staircases.
