1998 – 2007 Japanese Art Truck Scene.
Photographs by Tatsuki Masaru.
Little More, Tokyo, In Japanese, En, 2007. 116 pp., 100 color illustrations, 9½x11½".
Chromed up, with individual artworks on their panels and lit up like Christmas trees, these Japanese trucks and their proud owners (with sharp eyes for detail), form part of a distinct sub-culture in Japanese society. The full colour photographs, captured by Tatsuki Masaru in a project started in 1998, allow insights both into a personal and intimate world, and a unique aesthetic phenomenon.
