“Go and discover for yourself, because the fantastic thing about photography is that you are able to freeze a moment that can never come back.”

JAPAN. Tokyo. Crossing in the Ginza district. 1996.

“ Since my first trip to Tokyo in 1996, I have always been fascinated by Japan; it’s so different from China or Korea. The attitude of the people is distinctive. You have an incredible sense of security: school children take the metro by themselves; you have the feeling you could leave your camera in a restaurant or a phone booth and would still find it there when you came back a few days later. There is also such a sense of discipline, like at this crossing where everybody waits patiently for the light to change before moving forward. 

Something else about Japan: nobody looks at you. It’s paradise for a photographer, but after a while you wonder if you still exist.” 

NB. Magnum Photos arrange shipping to the UK via DHL costing $27.30 (delivery in 2-4 days) plus expect to pay around £20 in Customs Duty.
