Little by little, you'll get a New Yawker's impression of that chaotic megalopolis on the other side of the globe.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Back to street photography, it has been a long time. 

One of my favorite spots for photography: museums.  I heard that the museum direction has attempted to forbid photography inside the museum itself. Finally they dropped the idea after visitors complains. 

All photo were taken with my iPhone mobile phone.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
For long time, I wanted to photograph the Pattaya's orphanage. Finally, the manager allowed me to photograph the school for blind children. It as been one of the strongest emotional experiment in all my photograph life.

This is a old project i made in thailand, some of you may know some of the pictures, but i would like to show this project again and in Photoholik.

Thx for Francis who found this title project.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
On my first morning in Delhi I took a deep breath and plunged into the complex chaos that is Old Delhi. By 9:30 I had made my way to the enormous, imposing Jama Masjid Mosque. In spite of or perhaps because of its crushing size I was not fond of the great mosque. The staff were downright rude and only interested in squeezing money out of a wondering photog...

More significantly two days later at the very same place where I entered the mosque a fanatical jihadist on the back of a motorbike started spraying innocent Taiwanese tourists with his AK-47 sending two to hospitals with serious injuries, all in a bid to hurt the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

Some say, like the author William Dalrymple, that Old Delhi is a "City of djinn," an ancient muslim town haunted by spirits. The title for this project is borrowed from one of Dalrymple's books, one of the best works about Delhi.

This project is a sketchbook of what I saw in and around the Jama Masjid on a partly sunny monsoon morning...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
"The huzun of Istambul is not just the mood evoked by its music and its poetry, it is a way of looking at life that implicates us all, not only a spiritual state but a state of mind that is ultimately as life-affirming as it is negating. The Melancholy of Istanbul is huzun!"
Orhan Pamuk

(Istanbul 2008)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
I spent a weekend with a Japanese colleague of mine driving from Delhi to Jaipur in a company car with driver. This little project is a very subjective series of sketches from the Pink City. f course Rajasthan is on the one hand all about color, but I decided for reasons of cotent and narrative to go the other way, and turn my back of the gorgeous colors of the state. I hope it makes sense upon viewing...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Spreading out behind New Delhi Station is the seedy, anarchic backpackers' center known as Pahaganj. It's not somewhere I'd recommend for anyone to stay in but photographically it is fascinating on several levels. I went there on a sponsored walk organized by the Salaam Balak Trust, an NGO looking after hundreds of street kids who hang out around the huge railway station, surviving as touts, pickpockets and whatnot.

Pahaganj stands out precisely because of it's overwhelming messiness, itsenergy, that pulse which many say is more typical of the Indian street than most of stately Delhi.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Bring on those Sufi nights! Those mad, swirling, sweaty, hash smoking Lahore nights.
These where shot in 2004, when Pakistan was still relatively safe.
My hearth goes out to all the wonderful people of Pakistan. May the country become at peace once more. Insha'Allah

JIVE Lahore.... JIVE Pakistan !

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
O Radiant Dark! O darkly fostered ray!
Thous hast a joy too deep for shallow Day.
(George Eliot "The Spanish Gipsy")

I'd gone off night shooting for a while, afraid to repeat myself endlessly, save for a few recent shots of the annual dance festivals where I live in Tokyo.

And then I arranged to meet my friend Tushar at Karim's, a famous though overrated Mughal restaurant in the Nizamuddin sufi community of South Delhi. I had been there earlier in the day, to suss out the place and was intrigued by it, but I quickly realized that it is at night that Nizamuddin comes into its own. It might be going too far to say that night liberates the folks who live there but their whispers grow stronger, they assume even more of a conspiratorial air, the bearded Taliban-like men wolf down plates of sweets without shame and the whole town vibrates with a fervor that comes partly from their faith and partly from the childlike joy that comes from moving about freely at night among your own...
