Kenya Sugai, a photographer based in Tokyo, is a veteran at capturing colorful snapshots on the street. In his series AAA, a self-published book featured here, we see close crops on peacocks, advertising, and blown-up skirts. Despite the varying subject matter, it all has the same theme: a shifted perception that draws us in to these fragmented moments.
