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.

I’m loving these night shots. The subjects radiate vivacity.

I agree, I also love the night shots and Osaka shots. She is so cute, and her style is simple compared to some Tokyoite’s, but still great.

@Theo and Lactose Intoler-Art: I got myself the Nikon D3s in January, which has made it possible to shoot in the dark without using any strobes and still get excellent results. Maybe I should try more night shots, but I am really a morning person!

I’ve been wondering what kind of camera/lenses you and the JS crew use to shoot the street fashion pics. The D3s – that’s a heavy-duty camera!

@Theo: Yes, the D3s is a true workhorse. I love how it handles lack of light, and how sharp the images turn out.

@Mel: Zara is huge in Japan; they’re everywhere here.

@julie: LOL! You should do a Google search on your spelling error. I found more than 6,000 pages for insoiration. You are not alone!

HEY, I´m tired of spelling wrong! but I mean what I´m ‘trying’ to say..

Love this! Comfy-cute is the way to go. Plus, the leggings allow you to bend over in public :D Would love to know what her shirt says, though. Also, feathers are by far my favorite trend of this year [decade?]!

May 30, 2010 (4418 days ago)

@julie: No problem. We all make typos.

@petitesam: If I remember correctly, the t-shirt said Drunk Story. This kind of headband has been popular in Japan for two years or so now. Feathers, rope, shells, leather, hair, all kinds of materials are used. I did an article on headbands made of hair almost exactly one year ago.

@nanaa: Glad you like Osaka. It is a bit more difficult to find people to shoot here than in Tokyo’s Harajuku and Shibuya, but spend enough time on the street and eventually you will find them.
