Ricoh GR1v on Home Turf - Part 10 (24/06/2012)

This is the last post in the series of black & white film series shot in Japan. 

I've been thinking long and hard about what to name the series, obviously "Ricoh GR1v on Home Turf" isn't a great name, or one which means much to anyone outside the wonderful world of film photography. The title I've come up with is "Japan: beyond the colours"

The one common theme in this series is a vision of Japan, its people and their daily routines, without the the colourful fa├žade which is often a point of reference and source of intrigue for the outside world. In this series I hope to portray a fragment of the feelings and emotions which drives the people of this country during their everyday lives.

Enjoy the last shots in the series. Or to view the complete series click here.


  1. I like this set very much!
    How do you mainly shoot with the GR1v? Mainly from the hip?

    1. Hi JJ.

      I usually compose from viewfinder or sometimes crouch to shoot. But a couple of shots in this post were from the hip... Can you guess which ones?
