Shinjuku Station, Tokyo 1997

I made this view in the blue light of dusk on an April evening in April 1997 at Tokyo’s busy Shinjuku Station.

At the time it was the busiest railway junction station in the world, handling more daily passengers that even London’s famous Clapham Junction.

I have used this photograph and others from my 1997 visit in a variety of publications over the last 25 years.

I exposed the photo on Fujichrome with my Nikon N90S mounted on a tripod. I was emulating a style of railway photography popular in the the Japanese magazines at the time which used the extreme blurring of a train through a scene to infer motion.
