"I photograph Tokyo from fire escapes. The view from a fire escape is different from either the kind of view afforded by observation decks ... or the vertical perspective of satellite images.... From heights around the 10th floor--certainly not low but not very high either--it's more like looking out horizontally to confront the city, rather than looking down on it. And it's interesting that at this height signs of daily life, like laundry hung out to dry, appear in the photographs. Most fire escapes look on back streets, so the hidden face of Tokyo becomes visible. These behind-the-scenes views of Tokyo from forgotten stairways ... [make me] aware that the Tokyo cityscape I see every day and thought I knew well, I don't really know at all. I shoot my photographs in the hours from dusk until dark when manmade and natural light comingle. For me, this time when the new creeps in and the old fades away in a simultaneous slow dance is when the ever-ambiguous city is at its most beautiful... In order to precisely catch the colors and light play of the twilight in detail, I usually shoot with a large-format camera in mid-winter when the air is crystal clear.,,, I search for shooting locations during the daytime.... I always look for views which are densely populated with buildings. Many places in Tokyo are packed with buildings-some I find interesting and some I don't.... Those that interest me sometimes create strongly beautiful configurations that aren't noticeable from ground level."- sato-shintaro.com. 1 v. (unpaged) : chiefly col. ill. ; 26 x 34 cm.
