Hi-tech Tokyo

Sam Pritchard is captivated by Japan’s futuristic architecture at night.

Tokyo has been destroyed and reconstructed twice in the twentieth century, so compared to London and other European cities that exhibit more of a fusion of classical and modern architecture, Tokyo’s skyline and fabric appears to be more modern, consisting largely of buildings built during the bubble economy. Buildings made of stone or brick are an exception – everything seems to be clad in glass, tile or synthetic material. There are hardly any arches either – everything is straight lines and the sloped angles of the upper floors of apartment buildings seem synonymous with Tokyo. This adds to the Lego-like appearance.

The high population density requires that available living space is used efficiently and innovatively, so you can find anything from sports grounds to driving schools on the rooftops. This density and constant activity give it a futuristic vibe, while the fluorescent neon signage illuminates the city at night.

Flatiron permanence.
I had to spend like 15 minutes sitting in crooked position on the ground to take many many shots with different exposures. Beauty is everywhere.

This sunset was possible because of the street that ends at the waterfront of the Hudson River in New York.

Olivia Locher: I Fought the Law

Steven Kasher Gallery presents Olivia Locher: I Fought the Law, an exhibition of photographs breaking an eccentric law from each of the 50 States of the Union. Locher’s photographs take on the tangle of our pork-belly, dairy-lobby, male-anxiety, sex-obsessed legislation. Her quirky illustrations of America’s most unusual laws will make both Dems and Repubs roll in the aisles. Has Olivia Locher built the bridges that can span our red-blue political chasm?

Sometimes confrontational and often hilarious, Locher’s photographs are acts of civil disobedience. Though her images give these statutes a satirical spin, the project raises a more serious point about politics and social conventions. It points to the hundreds of decisions big and small made every year by local and state lawmakers. It asks us to ponder why riding a bike in a swimming pool was made illegal in California. What emergency made it illegal to doff one’s shirt in front of a portrait of a man in Ohio? Wine can’t be served in teacups in Kansas. Is that the work of the work of the powerful Kansas wine lobby? Why must pickles pass a bounce test in Connecticut?” In the case of Massachusetts’ ban on upskirt photos, the law was sparked by a serious concern. But when Mesquite, Texas institutes a ban on children wearing unusual haircuts to uphold the community’s standards of decency, we are forced to ask who decides what is decent, to whom do the standard’s apply, and how are they enforced?

Locher writes, “The work you are about to experience depicts America’s most unusual laws. Several of them remain on the statute books, the majority of them were at one point removed, others never became laws (but came close!) and a few of them are complete myths.”
