'During the couple of decades I spent in Tokyo I witnessed the rapid change in trends and values displayed by its youth, who would always challenge the image of conservatism in Japan. My photography studio was located in Tomigaya, in the thick of the underground... my fascination by its appearance, relevance and significance, led me to conceive this photography series.' David Stetson
In addition to the photographs he took at the Tomigaya studio, David Stetson also set up studio environments at the heart of every major happening within the Japanese underground scene. Shooting from Cosplay to Fetish, he captured an abundance of colourful, unique, playful, kinky and fun characters, outfit designs and outrageous attitudes.
'There is certain freedom, no quirk is too strange, no taste is too unacceptable. What some may consider bizarre and graphic, in Japan is thought to be beautiful and pure, a charm point. An enthralling way of expressing and celebrating both creativity and the body.' David Stetson
