SHOWCASE

Tokyo, Travels Off Track

 

Photographer: Yannis Karalis

Country: United Kingdom

Hello guys, This is Yannis Karalis, I run a project called Travels Off Track, I have travelled in many places all over the world the last few year; trying to capture the emotions of people, traditions, people in action and urban life. Street photography gives me the opportunity to discover myself even more. Paying attention to details in daily life, you can discover another world and it is such a joy! I believe a true story can be captured in streets, rush hour, busy life, action! Japan was mesmerising, it is one of the places that every street photographer would like to spend some time and to create a narrative. Through my pictures you will read my own personal narrative and how I saw Japan.
