On his trips to Tokyo, the huge social contrasts were a particular challenge for the photog - rapher Andreas R. Kremer. His visual vocabulary sensitively expresses both amazement and respect for the foreign culture. The tension between intimacy and public display, control and excess, individual and mass guide his eye. Kremer presents a world of pictures—lively, surprising, and sensual—with intuitive trust in the unexpected. With his multilayered dra - maturgy, the book becomes an impressive commitment to openness to the other.
