The iPhone 5 Release (and working security for Gaga)

The iPhone 5 had its global release while I was up in Tokyo. I headed over to the Apple store in Ginza and shot a few images of the Mac-fans as they lined up and then purchased their new phones. There were numerous Japanese press photographers and camera crews, but I was able to get the shots I wanted and then head back to Shinjuku for my exhibition. A couple of weeks later, someone in Okinawa asked me if I’d been working security for Lady Gaga during the summer. They showed me the following photo published in the Nikkei Weekly.
