Naoya Takahashi

Title: Striped

About the Photo:

Taken in Tokyo, Japan in 2018.

When I go out with my camera, I encounter moments of coincidence and strange scenes. It may be an exaggeration to call them miracles, but they linger deeply in my mind.

This one has all the elements of the three stripes. This wall is a gas station wall, and such walls are rare in Japan. The overlapping of the striped umbrellas is also coincidental, and even he is not aware of it.

These things are only possible through the two-dimensional expression of photography, and can be said to be the real appeal of street photography.
