Junku and the others

Not sure what I was searching for, but I stumbled upon this Junku Nishimura documentary on Youtube.  He is a very interesting Japanese street photographer and reminds me of Daido Moriyama.

He is not a guy of many words but his pictures are just great.

This is his website.  (Somehow does not run well on my iPad or iPhone.)

He mentions 3 other Japanese photographers to be his examples: Katsumi Watanabe, Isao Yamaguchi, Akihiko Okamoto. I didn’t know them.

I had expected Daido Moriyama, as I think their work have many similarities. But in one of the interviews Junku says early on he was not aware of Daido Moriyama.
