Well…We’re here again, the end of another rotation around the sun.
This is a year I will never forget as it was the year I finally escaped Japan – after 10 years and 1 day exactly.
5 months in to my rehab/recovery and I can honestly say ….. well I could write a book on how I feel about the whole thing, but I won’t for everyone’s sake….Let’s just say, so far, it feels 99% like the right decision.
In the dark heart of Shibuya’s seediest district, Maruyama-cho, amidst the love hotels, used underwear shops and sexual service advice centers lies an oasis of calm, The Lion Cafe.
A special bonus edition of ‘from the archives pictures’, this time from two years ago, September 2007.
I’m increasingly interested in the progression of my own work (those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it) and the subconcious threads that run through a persons work, only noticable upon reflection some time later.
It is also a good excuse to publish some pictures that would otherwise not see the light of day.
