The Urban Machine

The Urban Machine is an on-going series of black and white photographs taken since 2012.
All of these images are from regular daily travel, and other journeys, capturing both the mundane and the remarkable moments experienced while in transit and exploring the city. The populations of cities like Tokyo are ever increasing due to urbanisation and internal migration. The bright lights of the city call, and the working population, especially the young, answers. Even on a day-to-day basis, the number of people present in the city ebbs and flows as commuters make their way to and from their workplaces. The lifestyle of a city-dweller reflects both the best and the worst of our technological advancement. As we reap the benefits of convenience, we find ourselves bound within the workings of the urban machine.
