A short film including time lapse of a visit to Japan in May 2013. Features the City of Kobe, Kyoto, and Hiroshima and Miyajima ropeway, maiko dancing, the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Narita Airport in Tokyo, and views from hotels set to an original score.
Just completed a photo essay for Modern Glossy. I researched the Geiko and Maiko while I stayed in Kyoto. Mainly taking photos in the Geisha districts of Hanamikoji-Dori and Pontocho.
Research for this article came primarily from the book, Geisha: A life by Mineko Iwasaki.
Read the article and watch my short film here.
