When it comes to the identity of cities, is there more than meets the eye? With rapid urbanization and homogenization, the more intangible and humane aspect being of global cities being obliterated. The wanderlust aims to alternate experience for tourists in metropolitan cities, which give them an intramural understanding of the city dynamics.
Based in intuitive meandering and unintended encounters, the Wanderlust urges you to leave behind your pragmatism and instead let your instincts guide your way to discoveries. This aimless meandering through the
streets appears to have no plan or purpose. But this randomness is the rationale– to experience the life of the city
by surrendering to it’s ebb and flow– the chance encounters and unexpected discoveries.
The Tokyo wanderlust journal is photojournalist amalgamation of my experiences in Tokyo in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Daikanyama and places I cant even pronounce properly. I travelled by foot, trains and buses, collecting papers, souvenirs and memories with every step I took. Some areas were lively and some boring, some beautiful, some spiritual and some plain generic, but all in all, a deep insight into the overlapping layers of memories and cultures
of the city.
