The Weird Art of Everyday Life

| Art , Photography

Tokyo-based street photographer Shin Noguchi has a particular knack for capturing extraordinary moments of excitement, beauty and humanism that play out on the streets of Japan. Since 2010, Noguchi has been documenting these scenes in an ongoing series titled “Something Here.”

Every photo seems to have a story to it, or is begging for a caption. Noguchi’s photos serve as a reminder that moments of daily life are sometimes more beautiful and brimming with humanism than carefully choreographed films. There’s something special here, and for Noguchi, photographing them is his way of reaching out to say, “You are not alone. There is always someone in the world keeping an eye on your struggle.”
