Tokyo is one of my favorite cities, and I think most of the time, people look at the city at the eye level. For me, the real beauty of Tokyo is in its architecture and how it reminds me of origami. The shapes, the perspectives, and the profiles of buildings change as you walk a few yards. I am continually fascinated by the man-made urban beauty of the city. It might be the largest city on the planet, and yet when you look up, you can feel a sense of calm come over you. I wanted to capture that feeling and emotion and decided to use the SL2.
Some of the photos that I made with the SL2 and a Summicron SL 50mm lens are featured in the SL2 launch video produced by Leica Camera. These were all converted to B&W using my custom preset (that mimics my usage of Tri-X film) and then colored to subtly reflect the original colors at the time of making these photos.
