Empty Tokyo City - Rare Photo Collection

Great Japanese photographer Masataka Nakano spent 11 years on this project. He was trying to catch streets of Tokyo empty. When one city is inhabitant with 35 million of people, you must admit that this fellow had no easy job on his hands. This book of photos was published in 2000.

These aren’t manipulated composites but rather the result of a dedicated opportunist. anyone who has ever been in Tokyo knows how this is practically impossible to manage. this city looks like it never sleeps and these photos of Tokyo canter empty are pretty much science fictional. I can just imagine how his life looked like for those 11 years while trying to make photos with absolutely no one.
