Trope Tokyo by Sam Landers
Trope Tokyo, the fourth volume in the Trope City Editions series, celebrates the architecture and urban landscapes of this dynamic metropolis fusing the ancient and the ultramodern. The collection highlights the photographic images of emerging and independent photographers from Tokyo and beyond, who through their passion for the craft, creative development, and social media smarts have attracted impressive followings on Instagram.
This carefully curated and bound collection of 224 photographs offers a new perspective of Tokyo. Each chapter is accompanied by a map, along with the locations where the photographs were taken. From high above Tokyo Tower to the scramble of Shibuya Crossing, these images command a strong point of view: digitally processed, filtered, toned, de-saturated, sharpened, for a very urban sensibility. Showcasing both the quiet traditionalism and sleek futurism of contemporary Tokyo, the images reveal distinctive and dramatic visions of one of the world's greatest cities.
