After sharing her photographic impressions of Barcelona in 2016, Berlin-based photographer Joanna Krawczyk is now back to Japan once again to further showcase the visual relationships of the culture, architecture and people, by focusing on natural light and authenticity of the subjects with simplicity.

In this series, titled “Travel Journal of Soft Moments Dressed in Sharp Shapes,” Krawczyk emphasized silent conversations between nature, citizens and architecture observed at busy intersections in the cities of Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto during a month stay in Japan.

Her attention was driven by the contrast of public and private, duplicated and individual, imperceptible and obvious, while the work also explored a refreshing angle on ordinary life in the Kinki or Kansai region of Japan.
