Vending Machines of Japan
The prevalence of vending machines in Japan is well described, but it wasn’t until I visited myself that I really understood. Walking the streets of Tokyo, I would play a game where I would try to find places where a vending machine was not within a line of sight, which was not very frequent.
Amongst our adventures discovering Japanese culture, I capture frames and frames of images of vending machines we passed, often in unusual places – at the top of a mountain after a long hike, in the grounds of a centuries old castle. This zine is a presentation of this collection of images.

The Shattered Horizon Zine
The Shattered Horizon is a series of photographs which hopes to provide a glimpse into a place that only exists within the dimension of time. The body of work showcases a series of multiple exposures onto expired film using a camera originally designed as a toy, the Holga 120N. The series explores the dimension of time and how that can influence representations of real world places.
