A hallucinatory night walk in the outskirts of Tokyo, where sleepy suburbia emerges as otherworldly dreamscape. The occasional eerie appearance of a girl evokes riveting imageries: could this be the backdrop for a nocturnal crime scene? Or are we drawn into a tale of irretrievable loss and love?

For this photo essay Daisuke Yokota shot his haunting images on colour film before changing them to a monochrome palette. The camera staggers around without fixing its attention, resulting in a stream of images of trees, parked cars, street corners and forlorn buildings.

The work of Yokota unpretentiously traverses the boundaries between the digital and the analogue, overdeveloping film, re-photographing and scanning images and warping them with heat, dust or acid. Yokota’s energetic and unique process is permeated by the spectral qualities of the medium.


Edition of 500 copies.
