Thank you for your responses, Ulysses!

Not sure how I came across Ulysses’s work, guess in Tokyo most photographers just eventually cross paths. As seen from the responses he shoots color, and aside from the occasional fashion shoot is a photographer who simply walks everyday and shoots what he sees. I like the fact that he isn’t shooting in color just to shoot in color, but color plays a role in his compositions as the response with the Coca-Cola machine shows. But also the moments as his response to childhood shows shot on Cat Street. Check out his links below for more:
