I love shooting photographs, and I love watching photos as well. Especially if the photographer manages to surprise me and lets me look at something in a completely different way.

But there are some things that can not be expressed in a photograph. The voice of the person that you photographed or interviewed, the way she moved or the sense of humor or excitement she exuded.

Very often it is also extremely interesting to hear people talk about their own clothes. Especially when these people are really into clothes.

So starting tomorrow, JAPANESE STREETS will occasionally add video-taped street interviews of the people we photograph on the street. The very first one is an interview with 24-year old artist and photographer Hiromi Moegi.

I met her last Saturday when she was shopping for used kimono at the Shitennoji Temple Market in Osaka. She wore a gorgeous purple kimono which she had artfully matched with casual Western clothing, pink socks and a blonde wig.

Written down in words this sounds pretty awful, but Moegi pulled it off perfectly, as you can see for yourself in the above clip. Be sure to check out the photos too, tomorrow! They are really beautiful.

I hope you like this new feature of JAPANESE STREETS as much as I do!
