Hello! I'm Jean-Guillaume, or JG in Tokyo. I have moved here to surround myself with my favorite fashion and meet cool people. I do street portraits but also like to create more storytelling editorials. I'm mostly shooting medium format in analog. Film makes me slow and I focus more on the craft than machinegunning for pictures. Unrelated: I can also proxy depending on the ask! Hit me up.

I’ve lived in three continents in my life but in Tokyo, the language barrier is a big wall. I can’t communicate properly to make meaningful relationships and sometimes, it’s tough. I feel like my own shadow. And when I look around, I feel like I want to see shadows too. Faceless people not minding anything and who go boldly into the night.
I started shooting random stuff at very low speed during night and this is the beginning of an ongoing series. It is shot on film on very pushed ISO so it has that weird texture.
