"I'm not afraid to look like a big, hairy, smelly, foreign devil in Tokyo,
though I do my best not to, I really do." ~ Anthony Bourdain

I stayed as a guest in Tokyo for 10 days and had a wonderful time and met many wonderful people.
This was my first time in Asia and I found everything to be fascinating and new. Most of my days
were spent wandering around exploring Tokyo with my camera. I made images using black and
white film and a medium format camera. I often photographed people candidly. Other times I
would employ my own sign language and laughter to bridge the language barrier and ask for
their approval to look directly into my lens.

In October 2004 I was asked to partake in a group photographic exhibit in Tokyo, Japan.
This exhibit was the Zoom International Photographic Exhibition In Tokyo. It took place
at the Nihon Broadcasting Station Hall in Kojimachi, Tokyo, Japan. This special
international exhibit was celebrating 30 years of Zoom Magazine and the launch of
the new Japanese edition of the magazine. Zoom is one of the oldest and respected
photography magazines in Europe. The Zoom editorial offices are in Milan, Italy.
The exhibit was comprised of 15 images by each of the 11 international photographers
participating. I was honored to be the only American in this exhibition. This show in
Japan exhibited 15 black and white images I made in Peru.
