Summer with a Leica

Posted on by Bellamy

Or ‘strolling the streets of Japan with a Leica’ Japan has been having a hell of a year, possibly the worst in living memory.

Daido Moriyama interview

Posted on by Bellamy

Does what it says on the tin. An interesting short interview with perhaps one of Japans most famous photographers Moriyama Daido on why he loves photography and what he sees. Pretty cool to see him using a Ricoh GR21, which is pretty much my dream compact camera. Cheers Japancamerahunter
