Tokyo is Yours is a fictional narrative drawn from real life in Japan post the Great East Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011 The work is influenced by film noir, Japanese printmaking and Manga and explores archetypes, human connection, fear and anxiety. It is set in Japan a country which the author may never call their own. The work is edited into a visual poem which is left open for interpretation by the reader. I anticipate the edit will work well in both directions as in the style of a Japanese book as well as a western one.
