I have been trying to improve my photography skills and I have to say, it's tough. Taking photos seem simple, and it's actually super simple, but training your eyes to see beauty on the day-to-day things is another story. I believe it requires time and practice. Looking to things from a different perspective, or trying to use the rule of thirds for everything is a very demanding task for my brain. For others, like Franck Bohbot that seems to be a piece of cake. We have posted about Franck a couple of times here on ABDZ but every time he publishes something new we feel obliged to post, so we all can train our eyes for street photography. The photos we are sharing here today are from his collection Tokyo Murmurings, the complete body of work contains between 150 and 200 photographs. We will share just a few. It's also always important to remind all that those images are coypright of Franck Bohbot. You can also follow him on Instagram for archive and new work. At night, the Japanese capital sleeps deeply but isn’t drowned in darkness nor lost in silence. The highly traveled areas of the city transform into a sleeping megalopolis. There, you discover the city’s whispers, its secret passages, and become immersed in oversized typography and images of childhood heroes decorating vertiginous walls. © Franck Bohbot About Franck Bohbot Born in the southernmost suburbs of Paris, France, photographer Franck Bohbot moved to New York City in 2013, and is currently based out of Brooklyn. He is a documentarian with an eye for the theatrical who found his way to photography by way of cinema, and although he turned his focus fully to photography in 2008, the formal and aesthetic influences of the cinematographic form continue to underlie his present work.

The city of Tokyo, Japan is one the most wanted places to visit in the World. I haven't had the chance to go visit yet and the series Tokyo at Night by Masashi Wakui surely doesn't help as well. But his street photography of the eerie alleys of nocturnal Tokyo does captivate the beauty of its neon and vibrant colour palette.

Oak Thitayarak is a designer and photographer who's recently released Citizen Chicago, a thirty six page book of beautiful images captured from moments of everyday life in the city streets. Street photography and street portraiture is a documentary art form where extraordinary candid photographs are created from seemingly ordinary moments. "This form of photography, and photography in general has shown me a lot about life. It's taught me to live with an open mind, never to pre-judge a person or a situation. You can find beauty everything, just take the time to see." A notion Oak further expresses in the book's manifesto- For more from Oak visit oakt.net Chicago- a city of the people. Hardened by its weather and bonded by a common loyalty, an unstated union is upheld by the diverse citizens of this metropolis. Through the eyes of a street photographer, the city becomes a theater. Fascinating characters captured in portraits and snapshots depict frozen scenes from a story directed by life and fate. With every press of the shutter, the intention is to reveal potential in spotting artistry, even in the mundane. Sometimes poetic, others are as harsh as reality can be. Through it all, each exposure remains true, unposed, and unscripted. Take a walk with me, and let the breeze guide us through the City of Wind.
