Japan is a kaleidoscope of ancient traditions dancing with modernity. Returning to the images I shot while there, there is a fine balance between the long-lasting history and the rapid embrace of the new. Unfolding out of the landscape is a reminder of the practices of the past and now, becoming one with it, are the dense, urban city scapes which have become a world of their own. It is the interplay between the two which ultimately becomes so enrapturing.
That’s what the world is, after all an endless battle of contrasting memories - Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
