In occasion of the recently announced Leica Q2 camera, Leica Camera Australia and Melbourne-based street photographer Jesse Marlow set off for Japan - one of the world's most fast-paced environments, to take a moment, slow down and observe.
Shot over six days in Tokyo + Kyoto, we followed Jesse around the lesser-known parts of two visually foreign cities, to document his photographic process and craft.
"From a distance, it [Japan] always seemed so familiar yet so foreign, so serene yet so frenetic and this contrast has always intrigued me. The challenge for me as a photographer, was to try and discover my own version of this iconic land." – Jesse Marlow
The streets of Tokyo and Kyoto provided the ideal backdrop for Jesse’s ongoing search for bold colour, graphic compositions and reflective moments.
