Edgar Takoyaki is a contemporary photographer currently residing in Ventura, California. For over a decade now he has been visiting Japan and documenting different cities across the country. For the last few years Edgar has been working on his Analog Japan Project. For this project he is using a Mamiya C330 medium format camera and a Nikon F3 35mm camera. In an attempt to capture how dense and layered, cities like Tokyo and Osaka can be, he has used in-camera double exposures, long exposures and window reflections. Much of the work (including studio work) reflects the influence of Japanese culture and science fiction and is distinguished by a dark, atmospheric quality that suggests a larger story behind each image.
