Yojiro Imasaka

In my first college photography class we were frequently given 1-2 hours of shooting time to leave the photo building and venture out into downtown Chicago to knock out a roll or two of film. I found it enjoyable to be taking pictures during class but always felt slightly defeated knowing that thousands of students before and after me would be venturing out into a small radius around school shooting pictures of the exact same buildings, streets, and parks. What type of skill and eye would it take, to pass by the same thing seen by hundreds of passersby each day and recognize instantly the beauty and uniqueness of an image? It seemed almost impossible. It’s clear in Yojiro Imasaka‘s vertical shots of New York alleys that he posses just such talent. Something incredibly beautiful out of the completely mundane. (via pytr 75)
