Issui Enomoto: Taxi in the Sea
A taxi driver finds beauty in his work with a series of layered photographs.
Taxi driver turned photographer Issui Enomoto captures the eerie life of Yokohama after dark with a series of multiple-exposure photographs. Enomoto carries his camera with him on night-shifts in his cab, and takes pictures to fill time in his pursuit of passengers. The result is a number of layered images which have a distant feel - as though they are shot through water. Enomoto likens his taxi to a submarine, and compares the world he sees to the intensity of the deep sea. It is, we think, a lovely analogy.
