There are any number of ways to capture a landscape but most natural I’ve found is in portrait. The manner in which a portrait manages the wide breadth and noisiness of a scene and coaxes it into a quieter and more contained form. The aspirational quality given by a skyward facing frame testifies to the freedom people’s environments give. The way a portrait slices just a sliver of a scene, stealing an intentional space with it’s narrowed composition to give the impression of a fuller and unambiguous idea of what it is the image wants to tell you. From these portraits: the urban Tokyo landscape.
