Cinematic Tokyo Street Portraits by Casper Balslev

In Danish photographer Casper Balslev’s energetic series, the street photographs were taken on a visit to Sjinjuku, Tokyo’s financial district. Inspired by the faces and the characters in the area, Balslev snapped shots of people walking, biking and passing by. Asked if he was looking for specific subjects to shoot: “No, it was very spontaneously done. Most people never really noticed me taking their photo. I would walk around and spot people, then simply approach them, shoot one shot quickly, and then leave. I was inspired by street photographers like Mark Cohen and Bruce Gilden.”
