These are images of Japan, I photographed in summer 2013. We traveled by train from Tokyo to Kamakura, Kyoto, the Kii peninsula, and Nara. On the Kii Peninsula we hiked portions of the mountainous Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail from Takahara to Hongu, and Nachi. Most nights we stayed in traditional ryokans, sleeping on futons surrounded by shoji and reed. I shot all images on 35 mm film with a Leica M6. I am a street photographer and strive to catch the moment at it happened with as little intervention as possible.
