From Somewhere to Elsewhere is an ongoing project by Yota Yashida. As the title indicates, this series takes the simple format of coming from somewhere and heading away elsewhere. As with many stories, the beginning and ending are slightly similar, and slightly circular. Even though the characters in this series are in transit – they rest, walk, peddle and bike – they still constitute the contemporary atmosphere that repeats itself daily in Tokyo.
Yota Yoshida (1981) is a Japanese street photographer who lives in Tokyo. He attaches great importance to shoot photographs in a carefully and considered manner. In his work he tries to capture the present atmosphere in contemporary Tokyo society.
