Street life


PingMag has an interesting interview with some of the street fashion photography crews in Tokyo.

These are the people that provide style magazines with 'cool hunter'-type shots of crazy Tokyo kids. Its a strange mix of authentic and commercial as the photographer also brings along a stylist and items of clothing for these temporary models.

Some of the most interesting comments came from the FashionSnap crew:

Sometimes people don’t want to get involved when they hear, that we are an online magazine. They simply don’t trust the web and are scared that their pictures are misused for something else…

This distrust of the web in gen Y Japanese is interesting and very much at odds with the MySpace/Bebo/YouTube exhibitionists we are used to in Western media.
