Tokyo Love HelloThe Oscar
Tokyo Love Hello
by Chris Steele-Perkins

"I was never concerned with making a conventional travelogue of Tokyo, many exist and are useful guides. I was more interested in atmosphere, feeling, a sense of the strange, the whimsical, the daft, all quite intangible. I wanted the viewer, like me, to feel they sort of understood it, but didn't. They recognised something but could not quite figure it out." - Chris Steele-Perkins, February 2007
