When Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol arrived in Tokyo he initially felt invisible. He would take the morning train, packed with salarymen and school girls in uniform, yet rarely did he hear a word spoken and all eye contact with him was avoided. Drawn to the streets and public parks, he searched for the individual human presence in a city he found both attractive and repulsive. He began meeting people and photographing them, even being invited to their homes to photograph their most intimate moments. The result is a raw and powerful portrait of a city and its population.
