Das Passagen-Werk

My impression of Tokyo while wondering about it for the first time really, was that of an overwhelming richness of forms and composition. I imagined the parts of the city as cropped flat images and their intricacy made it impossible to determine the sense of a real space. The city was no longer a structure arranged by man through an application of a system but a wild ecosystem, similar to that of a forest. There was no place for perception in this jungle, but for intuition. Meanwhile, the only rest for the eye was allowed while looking at an empty sky encircled with a line of the buildings.

The series of 50 photographs creates an ironic yet playful exercise for the eye, through an act of strict artistic documentation rather than imaginative creation.
