Land of Technology

I grew up in England, but I was aware of Japan from an early age. I started doing judo and karate when I was 6 years old and I started playing Japanese video games from roughly the same age. My dad was an architect too, so I was always subconsciously interested in buildings and cities. He had a Canon AE-1 SLR camera which I was fascinated by and I remember that “Made in Japan” was inscribed on it. Lots of the other electronic gadgets of my childhood were also from Japan. Products such as Nintendo Gameboy, Sega Genesis, Sony Playstation, Sony Walkman, Casio G-Shock, etc. These high tech products made me believe that Japan was a very futuristic place and this belief was further enhanced when I saw Japanese anime like Gundam and Akira. 
After living in Japan for 10 years, I don’t think that life here is any more futuristic than it is in any other developed country. But in these images, I try to transform Japan into the digital future world that I had imagined it to be - as the Land of Technology.
