Once again, the icon of Japanese metabolism architecture, the Nakagin Capsule Tower, has made it onto these pages. This time it was photographed by Tom Blachford in the nightime.
A rough image from night 1 of my shoot in tokyo in collaboration with @asahibeer_au. The nagakin capsule tower built 1970. We arrived at the tower to find that there were no good views possible from the ground or any surrounding walkways. Instead I somehow managed to convince a crew of highway repairmen in front of the building to stop their work and take me 20m into the air in their crane lift to get the perfect angle. Was truly epic! Can’t wait to share some more images and footage with you.
