This is a series of photographs shot on one night in the Shibuya district of Tokyo. Shibuya is one of the busiest locations in the metropolis that is Japan’s capital. The iconic Shibuya Scramble Crossing sees up to two thousand people crossing each time the green man appears. For a street photographer, this is an electric location. The black and white horizontal lines of the zebra crossing and the dark clothes of the passersby allow for a high contrast look to the photographs.
Using a Nikon D7000, I tried to capture the sense of us all being together in this collision of coincidence; arriving to this point at this time; while at the same time we are alone and heading in different directions from this place.
In some of the shots I wanted to accentuate the momentum of movement of the people together and used the zoom burst technique to achieve this.
