For this series we showcase the Tokyo street photography of Toru Tanaka. Toru is a Tokyo resident and a prolific street photographer. Most of the images in this series were captured via a Pentax Rioch GR, the GR series have long been popular with street photographers due to the camera’s small dimensions and excellent image quality. Toru also sometimes shoots with a Fuji X100 at the weekends. The shots in this showcase series were captured in the Shibuya and Shinjuku districts of Tokyo.
All images were processed with Silver Efex Pro and Lightroom. With the largest urban population in the world, Tokyo offers endless photographic opportunities for the urban street photographer. Toru captured the images below from a city that truly never sleeps:
