Here’s a series of cinematic photos I did with actor Eiji Leon Lee. These were all shot on Kodak Tri-x400 black and white film. You can compare digital to black and white film. I have a hard time deciding whether to shoot film or digital so I usually bring at least two cameras to a photoshoot and do both. I need to be a little more decisive in future and decide on one.
(It is the story of a man who turned to a life of crime by working for the Yakuza. I won’t go into detail about the story but let your imagination run. We shot around the streets of Kabukicho, Shinjuku, the yakuza district of Tokyo. This area is littered with various love hotels, nightclubs, bars, hostess clubs, sex shops, stripclubs and adult stores with touts at every corner of the street. No doubt many of these seedy establishments are run and protected by members of the Yakuza. I really like cinematic photography and a series of photos which tell some kind of story. These perhaps are a little disjointed but I hope you can enjoy the photos.)
