French Designer Presented Tokyo Stripped of Advertising

Nicolas Damiens erased all signs, banners and screens from street photographs.

French designer Nicolas Damiens took several photographs of the streets of the capital of Japan and then erased all signs of the modern city – taking all advertising, logos and banner off the pictures.

As The Guardian puts it, Damiens managed to denude Tokyo’s sign-saturated streetscape.
