Tokyo – the buzzing metropolis renowned for its vibrant futuristic vibes. A city rarely perceived as empty or minimal, Japanese photographer Hiroharu Matsumoto eradicates the acclaimed hustle and bustle and offers a rare glimpse of the city by exploring the feeling of loneliness in an array of captivating minimal shoots.

The monochrome collection uses the play of light and shadow, capturing a rare silence of the buzzing Japanese capital.
