Digging deep into the streets is what Lomographer herecomesyourmtng does. How they find especially meaningful images that have their cultural and social nuances makes modern street photography even more intriguing. Using both the LomoChrome Purple and LomoChrome Metropolis films, these photos showcase Tokyo's collective identity.
In these times where cities become multicultural hubs, traditions and old imagery may have been foregone. However, the Lomographer seems to seek out the current and modern relics, iconography, and imagery that shape Tokyo City. Signature pieces, old statues, and icons converging with the uniquely contemporary objects and scenes found in daily local life: Big street signs in alleys, local fauna, religious statues, and the like.
The bright warm violets and pinks of the LomoChrome Purple contrast with the cool steel hues of the LomoChrome Metropolis, giving the series a dichotomous aura just as how both the 'old' and the 'new', the 'man-made' and the 'natural' meeting in Tokyo.
