Tokyo Dreams from Rogue
Very compelling yet finding it increasingly uncomfortable watching this guy secretly recording footage of people sleeping
interesting but creepy undertone… especially if these people aren’t told they were being recorded…
Hmm, don’t necessarily find it creepy, when I look back on my travels I’ve photographed countless people I don’t know and living in NYC I often have moments wondering how many tourist snapshots I’ve been a part of unknowingly. I don’t think it being a video makes it any different.
It reminds me two things : the heat comming from under the seats (it really made me want to sleep), and the sounds of the railway, the tiny music and voices of which I made a record back then. When you’re a tourist, it’s very relaxing but it’s feels obvious that they’re exhausted by the extatic rythm of their lives.
Maybe they will live longer thanks to these moments.
Talking about rythm of life, I just finished reading ‘in praise of shadows’ by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki. I enjoyed this book a lot.
