Tokyo Limited

 

Born in Venice in 1983, Renato D’Agostin is a young photographer I can get behind. His beautiful abstract series of street images from Tokyo really succeed in taking an overly familiar subject and making it seem fresh.

 

 

Legendary photographer Ralph Gibson, for whom D’Agostin assisted during his time in New York, puts it best when he says in the forward to the ‘Tokyo Unlimited’ series

“These images are the thinnest possible slices of inconceivable urban density. Slices so thin that they must be measured in fractions of light, tiny microscopic moments of DNA in time taken from the huge archeology of a true metropolis.”
