Tokyo Through a Looking Glass

Thursday, May 14, 2015

Swoon! Meet Takashi Kitajima, a brilliant photographer who captures the same Tokyo scenes in two different ways and juxtaposes them in one gorgeous composition. His photo series features a blurry view of the city full of dazzling colours, lights, and shapes and a sharp view of the same spot shown through a magnifying glass. The idea behind this project is to bring things in to a tight focus and present a miniaturized version of what’s before us.

I love how this makes me think of life in general. Sometimes we need a magnifying glass to see the beauty that is literally in front of us. Thought-provoking, don’t you think?

P.S: Remember the amazing Shinto-style bride in Tokyo?
P.P.S: Plus, this whimsical tunnel of lights.

These are really fun! I was thinking that it was a really neat way to focus your attention, and then I read what you wrote at the end about how the photos remind you of life in general. Love that thought!
