Son of a Bit
30 cm x21 cm
A proponent of digital photography, Uchihara is in the daily habit of taking several hundred images a day, some of which automatically are loaded onto his website. Some of them appear here, and were taken on his travels through such places as Tokyo, the Klong Toey slum in Bangkok, and during rest in his hotel room. The smallest detail is just as relevant as a field of rotting apples or the bustling activity found on a street, all captured in full-page vibrant colour and with a casual eye for order, chaos, life and death.
