DISCOVER: Pre-Bubble Tokyo

Presented in his new book, Tokyo-Yokosuka 1976-1983, Greg Girard’s photographs of Tokyo and Yokosuka during the late 1970s are a fascinating glimpse of a country on the brink of economic boom.

“The photographs in “Tokyo-Yokosuka 1976-1983” are artefacts of a pre-bubble Tokyo, before it acquired imaginative shape as the late 20th century’s default for a 21st century city. Remnants of post-war scruffiness combine with a transitional modernity, ground level Tokyo just as it was about to explode slow-motion into our late 20th century consciousness.” – Greg Girard
