Greg Girard - Toyko-Yokosuka, 1976-1983

The photographs in this collection are about the Tokyo that Greg Girard was living in from 1976-1983. It would be some years later before he started making a living as a magazine photographer and many years after that before he started to consider his early, mostly unpublished, work from Japan as significant. These photographs are the result of the decision made by a then 20-year-old Girard and the momentum from that first impression which turned him loose in a city that he never tired of photographing, both during the years he lived there and on subsequent visits.

Greg Girard is a photographer who has spent much of his career in Asia. His work examines the social and physical transformations taking place throughout the region. He is the photographer of Under Vancouver 1972-1982. He lives in Vancouver.
