The city, it’s a huge creation that continues to evolve.
I’m traveling around Asian cities based in Japan in order to archive the state of such the city.

The important theme of my project is two perspectives.
One is to leave in a picture of cities that are becoming standardized due to globalization and technology, and the lives and cultures of people who are diversifying due to the influence of climate.

The other is to focus on the creativity of human who are creating such an ever-evolving city.
Through photographic moments that the traces of the city and involving a variety of cultural experiences, I’m exploring the city envisioned by people, the radical urban image "Nameless city" that echoed like a basso continuo in people’s unconsciousness.

A human culture that repeats standardization and diversification In the flow of the times. Unprecedented catastrophes, global pandemics, ever-changing earth’s environment and people trying to deal with it. Where are humanity going from now on ? Now, my interest is it.
