Tokyo Girls - Harajuku Style

Harajuku style originated among teens on the streets near Tokyo's Harajuku Station in Shibuya. The style is all about mismatch, mixing tradition with modern, punks looks, school uniforms, gothic, bright colours, anime, ruffles, cute, heavy makeup and so on...

When in Tokyo in 2006 I made a series of pictures of the Harajuku Girls. There are five photographs in this series each produced in an edition of 5. I numbered the images one to five. Tokyo Girl Number One in my view works best... I like how the girl is confronting the camera. She wears a Cold War period German Democratic Republic uniform from what was East Germany.

Here are the photographs:
