Seriously good work...

Samuel Cockedy, a Frenchman who moved to Tokyo in 2000, has not merely the right eye for photography, but has the right idea as well.

Photography isn't about simply capturing light on film or emulsion: it has everything to do with creating emotions, of putting you "there", of placing the photography involved in your heart, twisting and toying with your feelings of desire, of despair, of that elusive "Sehnsucht", something between desire, regret and distance. I think he's done a fabulous job here: watch it, if you can and your bandwidth allows it, full screen in HD. Absolutely marvelous.
