Ariphoto (2006-2014)

Shinya Arimoto is an indefatigable street photographer who does not get tired of photographing Tokyo, a metropolis he has been documenting since 2006, "seeking out an unrefined or rudimentary, even primitive, kind of life, always in transition. " In order to do this, he puts to good use his special talent for finding the most picturesque and eccentric people, and embarks in a kind of face-hunt to create a dynamic portrait of Tokyo.

Italo Calvino invented a city that was simultaneously celibate and promiscuous: "A voluptuous vibration constantly stirs Chloe, the most chaste of cities. If men and women began to live their ephemeral dreams, every phantom would become a person with whom to begin a story of pursuits, pretenses, misunderstandings, clashes, oppressions, and the carousel of fantasies would stop. "

A voyeur in his adopted city, Arimoto's street portraits manage to encapsulate Tokyo's ecosystem and its carousel of fantasies.
