This modern photobook presents views in Yoyogi park, near Shibuya, in Tokyo, during the beginning of the eighties : people do sports, frisbee, trampoline, skate, a young baseball player drinks coke. Everything suggests the influence of the american culture in the urban life of japanese people. Ben Sakamoto uses high black and white contrasts creating graphic patterns by using overexposed light. The granularity of the images creates a special aesthetic. The lines of the road or of the pavement turn to geometric motifs, the shadows and figures on the street are originally composed.
