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.

Looking back at these images of the beautiful Minori, I am surprised at how it looks like we were the only two people there. We were actually surrounded by a huge crowd of people, and lots of tourists were trying to butt in to get their photo taken with Minori. They showed little, if any, respect for us doing the shoot. Minori took everything extremely gracefully. She is wonderful.

These shots are magnificent, Minori looks so natural just being herself and I love that. It’s like she gets even more beautiful every single day ♥
And reading your comment I got pretty annoyed, I really don’t like how tourists can be respectful just because they’re tourists, you know? It gives foreigners a bad image and just makes them appear rude in general. I’m sad people couldn’t behave while you were shooting.

@Jenni: Although the people I photograph are very understanding I sometimes get a little bit upset about some of the tourists. Some of them act as if they are in the zoo, and just shoot people without even asking for permission.

@Whitney: Yes, truly a work of art. I feel very privileged that have the chance to photograph people like Minori. ^^

Wow, her make up techniques are great! She looks like a nypmph in Victorian-esque clothing. I love the blend of textures. Her palette is mostly neutral, but it really catches the eye. ^^ It’s disappointing when people seem to lose their manners just because they are on vacation. Even if you are a tourist, it doesn’t mean you can act without respect! :-/

@Amber: Totally agree. I wonder if it has something to do with the large language divide. If you can’t understand people maybe it is difficult for some people to still see them as people?

@Kjeld: It’s hard to say. For my part, I think of it as the difference between a “tourist” and a traveler. A tourist has the means to travel, but they do not have the same appreciation for what they see. I think language barriers are part of it though. If you can’t understand what is being said to you, it’s easier to ignore. Maybe?

@Amber: Interesting thoughts about the difference between tourist and traveler. Here it is not a problem of people ignoring of what’s being said to them, but not even trying to communicate. Some people hover around, point and shoot. That’s why I compared it to people in a zoo… They have the same kind of expression on their faces as when people see exotic animals.

I guess people only respect others as much as they respect themselves…It’s unfortunate they feel comfortable acting that way. :-[ In any case, I hope we see Minori again. Her photos are beautiful. ^^

@Amber: Minori is now very high on my list of people I want to shoot more often! ^^

I am wondering if those are real flowers she adhered to her face? and if so, how? and if not, are they fabric? and if so, did she make them? Stunning. your photos are amazing.

@Rachel: Thanks for your kind words about my work, Rachel. Minori’s flowers are made of fabric. You can actually find these for sale, but I think that Minori makes them herself.

@Rachel: I was totally mistaken about the flowers. I checked with Minori today and she told me that the flowers on her face are real dried flowers. Apologies for the misinformation.
