ressha ga kimasu (*signed*)

@ Leblond, Antoine



Title in Japanese :  列車がきます

Presentation by Antoine Leblond :

"After several years photographing Japan, my initial admiration - a generic one - transformed into a specific interest for the rail roads. High-speed trains (shinkansen), express (tokkyu), semi-express (juntokkyu), local lines (futsu), private lines (shitetsu), metro lines, etc. The rail transport mode is an important part of the infrastructures and is a fundamental tool of the economic development. It is also a central element in Japanese culture, and the love of the people for their railroad networks is felt really strongly.

In the spring 2015, I published my first book ressha ga kimasu. Fifty photographs, fragments of memories to recreate a reality, create a world within the world. Through a glance full of nostalgia, I tried to tell my Japan, a Japan of darkness and silence, a Japan of the passage of time and absence, with the underlying theme of the rail road and its machines, at times muses, at times friends. "
