Walking in the City is a series of images in which just one figure in the city of Tokyo is isolated in each frame. The images are composed of bridges and walkways, designated walking routes within the city. The scale of the city is emphasized through the small size of each figure and the strong geometric patterns and lines of each scene.
The title of this series is taken from a chapter title of The Practice of Everyday Life, by Michel de Certeau.
