When I was finally able to travel to Tokyo again after 2 years, I was not aware that everyone here was wearing masks, quite frustrating for a photographer interested in people´s faces. One morning I sat over a cappucino at Shibuya crossing and saw the large smokers area on the other side of the square. A surreal place with short time visitors hastily having a quick cigarette. So I began to take pictures here 2 times a day. The beginning of my series TOKYO SMOKE.
