Photographer Akane Saito didn’t have her camera with her when she visited the gallery the other day, but she did want to share her self-published photobook of her series on her younger sister.
You can see pictures from this set and other work on her tumblr: saitoakane

Voigtlander Bessa L with 50mm f2.5 Color Skopar lens
Photographer: Munemitsu Komatsu / portfolio site 
While the Bessa L has a light meter readout built into the top plate it lacks both a focusing mechanism and viewfinder. He told me he estimates the focus distance and framing when he makes an exposure. Judging by his photographs, he has no troubles.  Komatsu is a member of Gallery Kaido in Asagaya and self publishes an ongoing photozine series called “Finder" that can be purchased on his site here.

Bronica SQ-B with Zenzanon-PS 110mm f4.5 lens and macro ring flash
Photographer: Shinya Arimoto / arimotoshinya.com / flickr
Arimoto has lately been working more on his Tokyo Debugger series, shooting insects and animals in the mountains and forests west of Tokyo. You can see his work from this series so far on Flickr, here.  He showed those pictures at Totem Pole in October of 2013 (exhibition review here)
He told me that this series will be edited and self-published in his upcoming Ariphoto vol.5. I’ll be getting an early copy to review on Tokyo Camera Style in October when it becomes available.

My current exhibition, Zuisha vol.8 is up at Totem Pole Photo Gallery.  Feel free to stop by if you are in Shinjuku- the show closes on Sunday, September 7th (open 12-7pm, closed Mondays)
On the left is the cover of Nobuyoshi Araki’s 「東京は、秋」 Tokyo, in Autumn (1984) with a picture I took at the Imperial Palace in June.  One thing that I find facinating about photography is the way it’s in constant conversation with itself.
