Godzilla Head Hotel

If the jet lag, flashing neon lights and chaotic nightlife aren’t enough to keep you from your bed at 3am, the metallic scream of a 40-foot-tall robotic Godzilla head above Hotel Gracery Shinjuku surely will.

On my first trip to Japan, I found the contrast throughout the country infinitely engaging. Environments were both minimal and maximal. Personal style was either conservative or expressively unique. The energy – either peacefully simple or intensely chaotic. The tension created by the juxtaposition of these opposites were a photographer’s (sleepless) dream.

The frequency of surprises on a Tokyo night is enough to make you forget what you had been doing just moments before. There are scenes captured in my camera that I am just now discovering and for that reason, I will continue to expand this journal. More photos to come.
