Japanese street photographer Yota Yoshida captures people traversing the public spaces of Tokyo.
Entitled “From Somewhere to Elsewhere”, his series portrays people, often alone, in various states of transit: on public transport, during their everyday commutes or simply waiting. Tinged with a sense of loneliness, the images capture the in-between moments that often go unnoticed. “I have a particular interest in the invisible things like various emotions and poetic expressions in the everyday,” states Yoshida. “I don’t ask permission to take the photos, because I think unposed photographs capture what is being expressed in the surroundings, which is important to me.”
