VoidTokyo is a collective composed of eleven Japanese street photographers who aim to capture the enormous changes which the country’s capital is undergoing in view of the 2020 Olympics. Their focus is the void which characterizes contemporary Tokyo, a metropolis projected towards the future at the speed of light. The VoidTokyo photographers share a very personal perspective on street photography, able to capture the city in a dreary black and white, inspired by the Japanese school of Eikoh Hosoe.
