About the Book
Experiencing the Tokyo subway, particularly during rush hour, is an exercise in contradictions: there is light and darkness, movement and stasis, rushing and waiting, arrival and departure, solitude and the masses, entering and exiting – all at the same time, creating an atmosphere that combines reality with the surreal. This book explores the Tokyo subway in gritty black and white images taken on film with a rangefinder.
This book has been months in the making, and I am so pleased to have it in publishable form at long last.
The book will be published in a limited print run of 250 copies. Please email me your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org after purchasing your copy of the book and I will send you a signed label to insert in the book.
Thank you and enjoy!

Currently living in Bern, Switzerland (formerly in Bordeaux, France), I am working on several healthy cooking photography and writing projects, including a food blog at www.bordeauxkitchen.com. I work both in 35mm digital and in medium format positive and BW film. I have had the opportunity to exhibit in Paris, Tokyo and most recently Moscow. Primarily self-taught, I briefly interned with National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry (photographer of the famous NG Magazine Afghan Girl cover shot). I have assisted photographers in Paris and Washington, DC and worked informally with several photography professionals over the years. I am excited about my published journals with images of Paris and Moscow that can be previewed here at my Blurb Bookstore! Thank you for enjoying and supporting my creative endeavors!
