I´m currently editing a photobook about my several Tokyo visits. The subscription contains cover + several double pages of this photobook. I'm fascinated by the supposed contrasts that always keep coming up in Tokyo, seen from a european perspective. The tension between individuality and conformity, intimacy and publicity, as well as other opposites that seem unusual or even incompatible according to the Western European cultural standard, fascinate me and are the reason for this book.

Andreas R. Kremer was born near Cologne/Germany. He completed a Diploma in Computer Sciences at the Technical University of Cologne and worked in the economy for many years. In 2013 he became involved with photography again, quitted his IT-job and hasn’t put down his camera since. Since 2015 Andreas is photographing commercially in the field of Interior Design. Aside this, he prefers to do personal projects. He likes to work conceptually as well as on the street. His first photobook about his experiences from several travels to Japan/Tokyo was published in 2019.
