The bounce of light from incidental land
image

I was 13 when Ryudai Takano went to Shenzhen. I was a teenager in a Britain; an uncertain mixture of popular culture and views of an English countryside from my bedroom window. Takano’s photos represent the polar opposite of the world I knew then (now too, perhaps) and as I look at his images of streets and corpuses, traffic and pilasters, apartment buildings and back alleys I look at a world I can only imagine. (1) I also wore a polo shirt like the one worn in one of Takano’s pictures. These are places that hold more than simple fascination. They speak of a world away, rediscovered as Ryudai presents his pictures at Zeit-Foto Salon. You should go check them out.
