Way back in 2008, I did a short interview with Japanese photographer Miya.
I happened to run into her again at the last Heavy Pop event.
Naturally, I felt compelled to photograph her again.

Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

Am I crazy or in the second photo she looks like she is pregnant?

@Ana: You have probably unconsciously internalized that a woman putting a hand on her belly this way is pregnant. The gesture is widely used to symbolize pregnancy in advertising photography.

Amazing! I am LOVING These night shots. Wow. Very “90s Harajuku” vibe. Have you seen the new FRUiTS that is coming out? FRUiTS tweeted the cover with a bunch of “??????‘s” Ha. I’m REALLY curious! I think there is definitely this appreciation of street fashion culture’s roots now in Harajuku.
