A Tokyo Retrospective
The original exploration of Tokyo's rain-soaked neon nights.
Following in the visual precedent set by Syd Meade and Blade Runner, Cody Ellingham’s DERIVE TOKYO series lifted the lid on a new way of looking at Japan’s biggest city. Through the lens of the old and new, Cody Ellingham seeks out both retro-futurism and cyberpunk aesthetics in this captivating series of photography.
DERIVE TOKYO was captured through a process of wandering and urban exploration that Cody first developed in 2016. Going out late into the night after relocating to Japan, Cody began to discover a new kind of city that emerged after dark.
