Over the past two decades, Hiroh Kikai has created an extensive and unforgettable series of street portraits from the diverse mass of people that pass through the ASakusa district. Posed against the stark walls of the temple, his portraits of Asakusa's iconoclasts radiate a sense of hard-won individuality. The photographs are accompanied by Kikai's own pithy commentary.
