British-born, Tokyo-based photographer Alfie Goodrich started taking photographs aged seven and his appetite for consuming the history of the medium gives him a broad visual reference from which to draw. He was chosen as a 2015 Hasselblad Ambassador and his work has been exhibited in the UK and Japan and published globally.
He photographed Winter Ghosts of Ginza at precisely twelve noon on a winter's day in Tokyo, returning exactly six months later to the same crossing at twelve noon to capture Summer Ghosts of Ginza. The images were taken using a vintage lens married to a modern digital camera, and it is particularly fascinating to note the changes in the light according to the different seasons.
Artist's Statement: "My photography is firmly rooted in a film aesthetic and I particularly enjoy revealing the beauty in everyday life - as with my Ghosts of Ginza series - or capturing the majesty of Tokyo's bridges and overhead highways."
