Japan's cities are magical places at night, something I first got a buzz for through films like Blade Runner, Black Rain, the films of Beat Takeshi, older black and white movies whose names I am having a hard time remembering right now.
The taxis are the ships of the night in the cities. For me the taxis and their drivers personify something about the city.
Japan's major cities are oceans of colour and light at night. The cars reflect that back. The drivers slip into the gaps, protrude into the spotlight, are bathed in flashes of coloured neon....
...shooting the taxis is something I can't see myself stopping any time soon. I shot this one the other night in Ginza.
