THE WEBERS

Tokyo Stories

Concept, Direction, Production Design, Cinematography: Karen Weber

My "Tokyo Stories" are short visual narratives that serve as a commentary on nostalgia, sorrow, and the loss and rediscovery of innocence. Muses Justin Weber and Tsubasa Matsumoto embody these explorations in various environments around Tokyo that declare nostalgia. I believe so many adults exist in a state of mental and spiritual sorrow, feeling like they have lost touch with the magic and innocence of childhood. This series is meant to provide commiseration, a surfacing of this hidden dialogue, and hope that it can be reversed. I created this body of work on a private residency in Tokyo January - February 2018.
