The Dutch-Argentinian photographer Richard Koek is a visual storyteller with a gift for being in the right place at the right time. For this book, he turns his gaze to contemporary urban Japan behind the iconic landmarks, kimonos, and cherry blossoms.  He captures the raw edge of these common clichés, revealing the authentic Japan in the process. This book will be published on the eve of the Tokyo Olympics (July 23-August 8, 2021).
About the Author
Born and raised in the Netherlands by his Argentinian mother, internationally acclaimed photographer Richard Koek now lives in New York City. He began his career with assignments at the New York Times and Stern Magazine and has worked for numerous corporations and non-profit organizations. He describes his pictures as pure reflections of his belief that people are the epitome of the world around them, while the world is the epitome of the people who share it.  His previous book (New York, New York: A Visual Hymn) was published in 2018.
