Last week, we introduced you to Riccardo Parenti's beautiful film photographs around Nichitsu, a popular ghost town around three hours away from Tokyo. We got in touch with Parenti soon after and asked him to tell us more about his ongoing project and experiences in the famous haikyo ("abandoned place").
I've always believed that every city in the world has some ruins and abandoned buildings, spots that are forgotten and ignored but always full of stories to tell. Then, there are also ghost towns -- entire towns that used to be bustling with life, but are now crumbling and rotting away with the passing of time. A Tokyo-based Italian photographer has been taking photos of a popular ghost town in Japan, and I should say they're seriously fascinating.
