The Ghetto V.S The Ghetto

Check it out at the 2nd floor gallery at The Ghetto from August 20th ~











For many a homebase for the last 3 years...a true Shinjuku Ghetto













I was asked to do a small contribution to a 3 year memorial exhibition of the Ghetto. Since I was shooting here from day one when the place was a rotten old "love hotel" it could be possible to just reap the past and put up some "old school" stuff. But I decided to focus on the "now" and show the place in a way that we don't see it with our own eyes. We see it and we know it's there, but not like this (if you don't have a pair of fisheyes, 15mm view angle) ! I like it and think it gives a presentable approach to the memory and respect of this old pearl of the red light lanes of Tokyo's murky backwater.
