We went to Spain and began working on a project we’ll soon write more about. This is the only photo that doesn’t match up with anything else we shot over there.
Winter/Spring-break is OVER! More stuff coming!
“I stay here until 2am everyday”
I’m thinking of shooting a short series about these small shops here in Japan. I’ve grown a fascination for all these little yet dedicated botiques all around Tokyo. With rare items, some shops so specific it’s hard to believe there is enough buyers to keep the business running and yet, there they are - day after day.
The income might no be the main issue. I think what these shop owners feel is that nobody is representing their style or taste and so there must be a shop specifically for that. There are even lifestyle shops in another scale than what I’ve seen back in Sweden. These can sell a fitting combination of music, clothes and even furniture.
The guy from this shop stays at his record/vintage clothing shop until 2am everyday.
Shop Owner: ”People who likes this kind of unconventional stuff, come at the strangest hours - you know. That’s why I thought I might just offer them some unconventional hours. It seems to work!”
Short after I found what I was looking for, bought my two Sakamoto records and left the shop with more than material with me. I left with the enchantment of that shops own little world. Where Japanese pop idols from the 60s are still in their prime and the latest Jazz record has to be listened through, analyzed and discussed.
I ♥ all these shops.

The heat man, the heat.
Experimented with a photo of an exhausted dog in Thailand.
Mmmm…. Made a good trade the other day. Got a nice wide lens for my baby. 19-35mm f3.5 in change of my Nikon 24mm f2.4. Looking forward to experiment with this as I am trying to figure out how to take better analog photos.
Both me and Maceo got ourselves a Flickr account too:
Some stuff that by any chance didn’t make it to the blog might end up there. There are some photos on Maceo’s flickr that will be in a compilation of photos taken by us both here in Tokyo during under his stay last winter. We are also planning to make a photo book in the future. Still working on the whole concept. Speaking of photo books, one of my photos will make it to paper by courtesy of Quiet Life Camera Club. They’ll release a photo book with photos selected by a jury. Which is a great idea. It can be seen -here-.
As you see there is always something cooking.
Great, now I’m hungry.

Not to long ago i filmed an event in New York called Urban Renewal. With some of the worlds best dancers around in styles such as Hip Hop, House, Popping, Botting and vouging it was a succes, with many crazy moments that went down. Here are some i managed to capture on film.
Not to long ago me and a couple of my friends went on a road trip to Philly with our good friend Raymo. He’s been telling us how great Philadelphia is compared to New York for a long time. So we thought it was a good idea to go there and see for ourselves. The trip was awesome to say the least. As the famous TV show title “it’s always sunny in Philadelphia” it was sunny our whole trip. We found ourselves eating Philly cheese steaks, hanging in the park with the baseball players, running up the rocky stairs jumping up and down and dancing to crunk music snapping our fingers in overcrowded clubs. If it is a better city than New York I can’t say, but I thought I’d let the local Philadelphia resident Raymo Ventura share his opinion with you guys.
So Educational: First off, tell us a little about yourself. Who are you?
I’m Raymo Ventura, a Motion Graphic Designer/ Audiovisual Turntablist Composer, born and raised in Philadelphia, USA.
To the people of the world. Why is philadelphia aka Philly, home of Will Smith and others the place to be?
Philly, known as the the city of brotherly love, is all about community. While our neighbors to the north New York maybe the international hub of culture, it lacks a centralized city identity cause it can be such a cluster fuck of everything. Philly is a place where strangers interact and collaborate on creativity. Also many people who work in NY, regularly commute from Philly cause the cost of living is much cheaper. Perfectly ideal for a lot freelance artists and musicians to get there mainstream exposure up there yet save their best personal work for the local community.
