I purchased this photo book at a store in Tokyo’s Jinbōchō district. I’ve compiled in this and one other post all of the scans that I could find online. When I have access to a scanner I’ll try to add a few more higher quality scans.

Tokyo Nobody by Masataka Nakano

This book has been in my Amazon basket for a long time..
I like this not only for the aesthetic joy for my eyes (a wooden 8x10 field camera has been used for each picture) but for the process the photographer has passed through for the making of this book I have in my hands.
Nakano-san spent 11 years to complete the book and he patiently waited for just the right time to make each of his photographs.
