Plastic Food


Photographer: Takeshi Ishikawa

Country: Japan

Food samples in the streets are a unique Japanese expression of food that expresses both the real and the unreal at the same time. Depending on the way they are photographed, food samples can look like a toy or the real thing. They are an interesting subject that can confuse the viewer.


Based in Tokyo and working as an art director, Takeshi started to take photos inspired by the many photographers working around him.

Looking for light and shade, and unique scenes of the city, he takes his camera and explores the city every day.
