On Sunday the annual Midosuji parade was held. I had never attended before so I didn’t know what to expect. However, I had a feeling there would be more interesting things to photograph than the floats and parade participants. I was right.
I hardly took any pictures of the people taking part in the parade. Instead, I went after the people watching the parade, and thus photographed a parade of humanity in all its charms and quirks. I wanted to keep the anonymity of the subjects and as a result there are many shots I elected not to upload to my gallery. Generally my aim was to retain a detached observer’s viewpoint and keep my subjects unidentifiable. When looking at the pictures, I hope it feels like we are really just looking at ourselves.
