Been following Joel for some time on Instagram, really as a part of the small foreign Tokyo street photographer community. There is a consistent contrast in his work in the extreme change of light & shadow that often is the most dominant compositional element in his work. More so I like the joy in there as it really is just him doing what he does with a camera exploring Tokyo. A lot of people don’t realize, but Tokyo is over two and half hours by train going east to west, so there is quite a bit to explore…and he really is just visually engaged. Check his links below:
