After photographing Fuji Rock Festival, I managed to meet up with my friend Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert in Tokyo. We’ve been having these brief rendezvous over coffee for the best part of a decade. We’d discuss photography, our lives in Japan, assignments and the state of the world. I’d amuse Jeremy with tales of shooting Yakuza bottoms, and he’d inspire me with his images of whaling, Romani gypsys and Japanese cultural icons.
A few days after our last meeting, Jeremy and his family moved back to Glasgow, Scotland. He doesn’t need me to wish him luck with his career, but I’ll continue to follow his adventures, albeit from a little further afar.
