This week on Mirrorless Monday, we are featuring Ainga of AingaFrames who takes us on a journey a country that has long intrigued us both, Japan. Through her gorgeous photos taken with the Sony NEX 7, we get a real sense of what day-to-day life is like in this place that is, to Western eyes, the epitome of exoticism. Thank you, Ainga, for sharing!
Japan is a heaven for a street photographer. It is a country with a compelling culture — blending the East with the West, and the traditional with the new. The 120 million inhabitants of Japan are tightly packed into the land mass equivalent to the size of California. Tokyo, Japan’s capital and the world’s largest metropolis of more than 30 million inhabitants, reminds me of a giant storybook with 30 million stories unfolding simultaneously, everyday for 365 times a year. I am fortunate enough to capture a few of these scenes with my camera.
