William Klein has continuously been active in the front lines in a wide range of areas, working as a fashion photographer for Vogue magazine, a movie director, and a photographer who continues to capture urban sceneries in unique ways. Following New York (1956), Rome (1956) and Moscow (1961), the photographs of Tokyo that are shown here represent part four of Klein’s series themed around cities. In pictures of pachinko parlors, the stock market, strippers, billboards and neon signs, he portrays a chaotic Tokyo in the middle of the period of rapid economic growth.
