About the organic part of Tokyo, how it's alive, green and human. I will use the multiple exposure on sensor technique to bring one more layer about the context and compose kind of iconic views of the "Living" Tokyo. All double pictures are taken in a 30sec row (the nikon technical limitation for real double exposure) It even brings a feeling of the place of the picture.
Eukaryote in Japanese can be translated with
Eukaryote is what every living beings have in common. From plants, to human beings, mushroom, animals, vegetables, fishes, etc. In French all's stuffs coming from eukaryote is called "matière organique". I wanted to share that Tokyo is an impressive living being.
Triggering two times on the same sensor exposition of piece of film: the dark parts remaining (on the piece of film or the sensor) are like "free for more content" and the second shot expose one more time in the photograph.
I use this technique to emphasize the emotion I feel when I am in Tokyo about the "organic" living maze, all here is not ordered with logic but disordered with emotions. Humans have created their place to live here and this place is like a forest. Sometimes I blend architecture extract with vegetation, sometimes not. I had the similar thoughts about how photographers deal with Tokyo when I saw the pictures in the Tokyo space exposition at the TOP museum, the photographers who worked on the "Tokyo" topic: Honjo Naoki, Sato Tokihiro with Photo-Respiration and Hatakeyama Naoya.
