Through the Lens: Roll #003 (Tokyo)

This week John and I took to the backstreets of Omotesandō to shoot our friend named Koichi. He is a brilliant Flower Artist and the mastermind behind Loyalty Flowers. In addition, Koichi is a super talented dancer that we shot a fun video with last year.

Koichi even brought a bouquet of his dried flowers as a great prop for the shoot. It was really fun capturing his work while he was wearing our Summer Waves Tee and Front-side Long Sleeve. I enjoy shooting with creatives because the entire experience is a collaborative effort. Truly dope. Truly Like Mind. You should definitely take the time to check out his work!


Here are some of the photos from the shoot:

Lately I've been inspired by the backstreets of Tokyo. Although I'll always be a fan of bright lights and awe-inspiring architecture, I'm starting to find the beauty in simplicity. One thing that I've noticed about this city is that there is a perfect balance of nature intertwined with the hustle and bustle of the city life. It's easy to discover flowers and plants pretty much anywhere, so I figured I would try to capture that with this most recent shoot.


All photos were taken with the Nikon L35AF on Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 film.

In seeking solidarity, we find unity; and in working together, we find harmony.

For this is not about tearing down, but about building up.
