Sharp looks are staring from above. Rigour, aplomb, composure, that innate way of being here turns into metal, concrete, glass and becomes matter. The building facades are like faces of this layered city, which surrounds you and embraces you in silence.
Tokyo Color Chart is a selection of photos taken with a 85 mm lens, usually used for portraits, which describes Tokyo not through people but through architectural structures and palaces. Their textures, patterns and designs perform a concept of uniformity, equality and homogenisation in a country where even uniqueness becomes part of a larger and communal thought.
The colour gray is predominant, its monochrome shades reveal a neutral way to live and relate to others, a behaviour of hiding behind an inscrutable facade never leaning towards a clear-cut position. But it is just when the gray reaches its average level, there it comes the detail that takes your breath away.
