About Yusuke Nagata
Hi, I`m Yusuke Nagata from Tokyo Japan. I’m a street photographer and one of the founders of Tokyo Street Photography Club (Tokyo-SPC).
In July 2019, “TRUMP ROOM,” one of the most famous nightclubs in Shibuya, Tokyo, closed permanently.
Hayao Matsumura, the owner of TRUMP ROOM said, “In the past, young people had encounters in and were stimulated by places like this, but now young people can get to know each other on the internet and put themselves out there on social media, so people no longer come here.”
I know nowadays we can use Tinder for dating, we can watch movies on Netflix and we can order food using Uber Eats without stirring. It’s rational because it’s safe and we can save time and money.
I don’t want to be a boring person who doesn’t enjoy their life.
That’s why I shoot street photography. For me, street photography is an attitude. Street photography is trying to find beauty in this world. It’s not just another genre of photography.
In shooting street photography during the night time, I’m trying to capture beauty in irrational behavior in this rational society. If you think rationally, you think people should go to bed at night. But people in the night are gathering in towns without reason, like a butterfly or moth attracted to the light.
Irrational things happen in the night time. That’s a law of nature. We are human beings, not robots. So I want to live my life the way I want, even if it seems irrational, and I definitely want to do something exciting. Even if there’s a risk, I think that’s life.
I named this first selection of my photographs “Tokyo Night Vibes”. I hope you can feel something of these Tokyo Night Vibes in my work.
