Godai Miura - Yokohama
Godai Miura is nothing short of a wonder. Stumbling upon his Instagram you would expect him to have a bajillion followers: his photos are beautifully composed, often funny, sometimes melancholic portraits of the people of Yokohama, his hometown. All shot in glorious medium format, people and landscapes blend in what are both portraits of people and portraits of the city, one influencing the other in an endless cicle that repeats itself everyday, just like life.
Using his own words:
The extraordinary is hidden in the daily life.
Many people don't notice, but photos can tell.
Godai's body of work is already incredible, but it feels like it just begun. Years will go by, people will come and go and hopefully he'll be there, making sure none of that will be forgotten.
