Thank you for your responses, Richard!

Been following Richard for some time now and it is his consistency that stood out to me. His work is mostly done in Osaka in black and white (some color) of just everyday Japan. He manages to avoid the common clichés of neon lights, tight alleyways, and general oriental-ism for simply what Japan is. If one were to be objective, you will find this is actually a difficult thing to do for a lot of foreign photographers who shoot here. For more check his links below:
