Presentation :

"Tokyo is a visual journey through a city at once futuristic and obsolete, its visionary design worn out – like that of a past era.

Johanasson uses photography to index the city, finding form and pragmatic order through accumulation and sequence, revealing the city's hidden, modular logic: lego-like segments, a basic square unit repeated indefinitely and in various sizes.

These images are unpeopled, showing only the architecture of the city, a container of 13 million people, organised around mass movement and the funnelling of human traffic. Between the concrete, glass and steel, the occasional green life sprouts – miniature gardens in the narrow alleyways, or a cluster of flower pots lining the sidewalk.

The architecture creates its own topography, and the city is glimpsed as the last outpost of a fading, mechanised world."

Ancient Japanese text by Kamo no Chomei, translated in English.

Design : Greger Ulf Nilsson.

The images presented here come from Gerry Johansson's website.
