Entry Description

This photo was taken in Tokyo Japan. There was a language barrier between the model and I but yet we still spoke the same langue through photography. This image spoke to me in a since that the subject is meditating on something or someone very important. This is a captivating image because even though the conditions aren't favorable she is very focused on whatever she is thinking about. It makes the viewer reflect and also draws connection between the subject of the image and the viewer. The location of the shoot was in a very busy place with tourist all around but we were able to find a peace and stillness in the atmosphere.
