“The sorrow, the joy of the people I pass, the flourishing and decline of the streets reach into me like the voice of living flesh.” — from Keizo Motoda’s afterword

Without the dates clearly stated in the caption of each photograph, it would be difficult to ascertain in which decade Keizo Motoda shot the images in his photobook “Todoroki” (the 2010s).
In his street portraits, Motoda lives his fascination with sub- and fringe cultures in Japanese society, from rockabillies, street performers, transvestites and lowrider enthusiasts to traveling buddhist monks. He turns his lens towards those who make the streets interesting.
