London by Jiro Hokimoto

2 May

I found Jiros’ photos while trawling flickr and was struck particluarly by the shadows and his use of solitary figures the images
reminded me a little of Australian painter Jeffery Smart and Australian photographer Mark Strizic who are two of my inspirations. Many of Jiros images are typical street photos, what I look for here on Urban Photo Mag, is a certain sense of solitude,stillness & space. The images which Jiro submitted were really outstanding example of this. This set has a classic street photography feel but also that sense of emptiness and a finely tuned sense of design, which is what I’m really looking to promote on this blog.

    These are superb. Love the colour, the light, the shade and the solitary person.
