"Starting from fact that for the Japanese mentality and spirituality does not make much sense to speak of time in chronometric terms, as objective measure, since it has no beginning or end, it can be said that what matters is the quality of the instant, the intensity with which it is lived.
For this reason in Anime we often find ourselves in front of "eternal" moments, in which the time of the narration coincides with that of the emotion. So more this moment is intense, more the moment extends, until it is placed outside of time, in a still image, in a panorama, in a fade."
(The language of Anime - on Time Dilation)
Japan is truly another world.
Stopping at crossroads, I lost myself looking at people, fascinated, intrigued.
And the curiosity was mutual - I didn't go unnoticed.
Photographing was a way to feed this reciprocal curiosity
So I found myself waiting for the moments, the people, the looks, and it always ended with a greeting, a thank you, and moments of impossible dialogues.
These photos are therefore only a moment of this curiosity, of this dialogue, of the emotions I felt it that moment.
Each of these shots has a before and an after, of each photo I could tell its little story.
Most of the photos were taken in Tokyo.
More precisely in Shinjuku, and in Kabukichō, the most demure and illuminated red light district I have ever seen.
