Photos of a Pop Singer’s Abandoned House, Japan
The above photo is from a series taken by Tokyo Times, while visiting an abandoned building. Inside, he found the remnants of an old enka singer’s life, a time capsule of sorts. The images are moving in what they suggest – a life of music, and a time that’s since passed.
I love these photos for much the same reason I love all found objects: they shed a little light into the people behind them. Never enough to get a full story, but enough to get a good story.
