This collection of photographs paints an intimate portrait of Tokyo, the city
the Austrian-born photographer-filmaker-graphic artist Edgar Honetschläger
has called home since 1991. Rejecting the ubiquitous imagery of
skyscrapers, bullet trains, neon signs, and pedestrian and traffic-clogged
streets, Honetschläger instead seeks the islands of calm within urban Tokyo.
Rare early-morning shots capture a still-deserted Tokyo at dawn, with an
overcast sky and very few people in its famous streets. His Tokyo is a place
of quiet gardens and reflection. The artist s own poetic observations are
arranged like bookmarks among the photographs, which were taken with an
ordinary medium-format camera. A beautiful book which re-frames the
reader s thinking about Tokyo.
