Nobuyoshi Araki [part 1]

1 min read

Well, I thought it time that I put up a video about the notorious Araki. You cannot really escape his photography and the impact that he has had on Japanese photography. I was never a particular fan of the man or his work until I watched a documentary about him recently. What I saw was […]

Street photography doesn’t have to be a battle Recently there has been a lot of talk about what is good street photography and what constitutes invasion of privacy, especially in light of the video by Fabio Pirez. The video, which he has now taken down showed Pirez jumping in the face of people on the […]

Don’t be a boring photographer, make yourself interesting We often find ourselves stuck in a bit of a loop, no matter what it may be in, and photography is no different. God only knows how many times I have found myself taking pictures of the same things (and how much bloody film I have wasted). […]

A fun little video made by my mate Irwin Wong, featuring a very handsome Japancamerahunter (look out of the fat spanner with the silly hat). Unfortunately I now have this bloody tune running around my head. Check out his site here. Cheers Japancamerahunter

An interesting video for any of you who are developing film at home. Developing with coffee. I have heard people talk of this, but never actually seen how it is done. Interesting, if you are after that particular kind of result. Cheers Japancamerahunter

I have been studying the work of different photographers over the summer and have been trying to give my […]

In this documentary he talks a little bit about his work, influences and what he enjoys. A great insight into a great photographer. […]

The latest photo essay from Leica and Magnum. Domonic Nahr, the Oskar Barnack award winner from 2009 travels to Fukushima to cover the nuclear situation that has become part of life for the residents there. It is interesting to see the western take on this terrible problem. Nahr has a sensitive view and highlights the […]

Summer with a Leica

3 min read

Or ‘strolling the streets of Japan with a Leica’ Japan has been having a hell of a year, possibly the worst in living memory. The Tohoku earthquake, the ensuing tsunami and the meltdown of the Fukushima reactors taking a massive toll, not just physically and economically, but also mentally. Japanese people have shown massive strength […]

Daido Moriyama interview

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
