Tokyo Urban Changes



After living for more than three years in Tokyo, I am now an official citizen of the beautiful city of Kyoto in Western Japan.

To say goodbye to Tokyo, I re-photographed a picture sequence "the way home from the station", which I took at the beginning of my time in Tokyo and paired the new pictures with the old ones.
The result resembles those riddles where you have to compare two pictures and find the differences.

I was aware of many changes (e. g. a new underground line was opened, shops disappeared, buildings were pulled down and new ones were built), but by arranging the photographs, I realized even more details: There were trees cut down, companies changed their corporate identity, street furniture was altered…

Have fun with finding the differences!
