Tokyo is a city of contrasts and contradictions in which East coexists with West; modernity thrives amidst age-old traditions and orderliness prevails in one of the most densely-populated cities in the world. This collection of black and white photographs illustrates all of these truisms about this complex city and its inhabitants. Whether he's photographing a rooftop shrine set against the skyscrapers of the Shinjuku high rise district, a swirling mass of commuters in Tokyo Station at rush hour, or the tranquil beauty of the Imperial Palace, Ben Simmons' photographs radiate with Tokyo's vitality and reveal its enduring traditions.
