The things I saw (Tokyo) #4


“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it”

All the images here were made using an Olympus MjuII 35mm compact and various film (Fuji Superia 400/800 and Kodak Gold 400, mainly). Processed and scanned at UK Film Lab.2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16


  1. I live in a country from where travel to most countries in the world is very difficult, so I’ll probably never get to visit Japan. Your images take me there instead. I love that you photograph everything, even your toothbrush, even that shot delights and intrigues my senses. I’d love to see this entire series published in a book – The Things I Saw, by Phil Kneen. I’d be proud to own a copy 🙂


  2. Eggleston, Parr, Shore, Goldin, Soth… I see a lot of their work in yours, yet your images are still totally unique and individual. Well done, my friend, you’re gonna be up there with the greats.


  3. You’ve been single for a few months, and in that time you’ve produced some of the best portraiture and photojournalism I’ve seen you make… I wonder if I’m the only one to notice the correlation?
