The images of this series show an interweaving of people and urban elements thanks to meticulous choice by the photographer. The images were created in two intervals: the first from a distance, for the views of the country, and then a more detailed shot, bringing to the viewer's attention an unnoticed subject. This method creates an effect which calls for closer inspection. The series aims at an original treatment of the photographed subjects, trying to get away from the usual snapshots of Japan.
