Big In Japan . Where there is a desire for a dream your own self-reflection is unavoidable.
Having an interest or having the highest goals all starts with the inspiration of others that was before you. The project ‘Big In Japan’ is an attempt to construct an imaginary dream that in a strange way all starts with a memory of an unachievable reality. This, like many others can only feel real from distance, however when you are in the middle of it will feel it as an unreal experience.
WHEN AND WHERE
The photographs were displayed in London between the 21st and 25thAugust, but there is still an opportunity to see his work at the London College of Communication Final Exhibition which will open on the 19th November 2012.
