Link: Tokyo Girls on NYT


The New York Times Magazine has a very interesting article about Hellen van Meene's photographs of young Japanese women and Japanese youth culture. Be sure to check out the multimedia slideshow.

From the article:

Van Meene says she does not conceive of her portrait photographs in the traditional documentary way: while she does not exactly ''stage'' her subjects, neither does she try to capture their true, underlying personality or state of mind. Instead, she chooses to see her subjects as the raw material of her own fictions. ''This is not just you, now,'' she explains. ''This is a sense of you, created by me.''
