Atsushi Momoi: score (#scene1 / Tokyo)


Atsushi Momoi, born in 1979, is a Tokyo based Japanese photographer. The relationship between the individual and its environments. Momoi’s work, albeit architectural in nature – emphasizes on visualizing a more emotional life to the urban landscapes he captures.

The first body of work to be featured in our Consumption release, Momoi’s score (#scene1 / Tokyo) is a playful and ominous take on the concrete jungle. Through analog and digital manipulations, Momoi has constructed a series of images that is coded with ‘the sounds of the city.’

Grey, almost monochromatic monoliths are depicted as if they are trembling in the presence of the camera as Momoi tried to visualize a ‘unique musical story’ for the city that he currently calls home.
