Tokyo is a visual journey through a city at once futuristic and obsolete, its visionary design worn out – like that of a past era. Johanasson uses photography to index the city, finding form and pragmatic order through accumulation and sequence, revealing the city's hidden, modular logic: lego-like segments, a basic square unit repeated indefinitely and in various sizes. These images, taken in 2004, are unpeopled, and show only the architectural elements of the city, a container of 13 million individuals, organised around mass movement and the funneling of human traffic. Between the concrete, glass and steel, the occasional green life sprouts – miniature gardens in the narrow alleyways, or a cluster of flower pots lining the sidewalk. The architecture creates its own topography, and the city is glimpsed as the last outpost of a fading, mechanised world.--from the publisher. Hardcover, cloth bound with a tipped in image on front. 160 unnumbered pages, with 95 black and white photographs.
