Depicting the life of a suburban town in Japan in a black and white palette that adds a sense of enigma to the general stillness, Seiki Hayashi’s series is a welcome change to the bright neon lights of Tokyo (as much as we’re fans of the bright neon lights of Tokyo). A mixture of architectural, landscape, and documentary photography, the collection is unremarkable in terms of action, instead presenting a reality that feels like a ticking clock. There’s the man walking to his car, the moped passing the crossroads, and a railway line absent of trains, which each elicit an unmistakable sense of time – a stalled inertia that might speed up any second if only you look on long enough.
