Danchi Dreams Photographic Series by Cody Ellingham

Danchi Dreams Photographic Series by Cody Ellingham

Just to keep going from our Friday Feature, let's take a closer look at this photographic series by Cody Ellingham, a photographer and art direction based in Tokyo, Japan. He released this photographic series entitled: Danchi Dreams and you just gotta love the atmosphere! Tokyo is such a busy city but it gets pretty quiet at night and almost horror-like. I love how Cody used this tone for his series and away from the usual locations that we see all the time. Check it out and make sure to follow him on Instagram. DANCHI DREAMS will launch on May 12 at a former factory turned into a gallery in the Tokyo district of Koto. It is the work of Cody Ellingham, now a Tokyo-based photographer who found fame in 2017 with his DERIVE series of futuristic Tokyo cityscapes.

They were not just housing projects, but something to aspire to – a vision of a harmonious life and Japan’s new found prosperity.  Half a century later DANCHI are in decay. The concrete symbol of Japan’s economic miracle and post-war identity are slowly being forgotten and some are already gone. . . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag #tokyocameraclub #東京カメラ部 #magnumphotos #burnmagazine #onbooooooom #gupmagazine #rentalmagazine #streetdreamsmag #theheavycollective #ignantpicoftheday #rentalmag #minimalzine #imaginarymagnitude #nightphotography A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Mar 14, 2018 at 6:12am PDT I look up at these exhausted blocks of concrete and steel that were once the dream of a new Japan. I asked the question "What happens when modern architecture becomes old?" DANCHI DREAMS will be on display at Atelier Takiguchi on May 12 & 13 in Tokyo – details coming soon. . . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag #myfeatureshoot #lensculture #magnumphotos #burnmagazine #onbooooooom #gupmagazine #rentalmagazine #streetdreamsmag #theheavycollective #ignantpicoftheday #rentalmag #minimalzine #imaginarymagnitude #nightphotography A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Mar 8, 2018 at 4:42am PST The Decline of the Dream. . . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #wtns #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #ifyouleave #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Mar 2, 2018 at 6:12am PST Tonight at @ Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo I will be officially announcing my new photography project exploring the Dream, the Decline, and the Decay of DANCHI – Japanese Public Housing Apartments. . . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #wtns #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #ifyouleave #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Feb 27, 2018 at 1:43pm PST ⚡️ I will be introducing my new photographic series DANCHI at Pecha Kucha Tokyo next Wednesday night in Roppongi. DANCHI public housing apartments range from 3 and 4 story blocks on the edges of cities, to massive complexes housing tens of thousands of people. The architecture of these new concrete communities replaced the wood and dirt of Old Japan and brought with them the promise of a bright future, but what do they mean today? . . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #wtns #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #ifyouleave #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag #nextjauntmag #fubiz A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Feb 21, 2018 at 6:58am PST How does architecture change people? ⚡️ A glimpse at the new series「DANCHI 団地」from Cody Ellingham (CBJE) . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #wtns #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #ifyouleave #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Feb 14, 2018 at 3:09pm PST Dreams of DANCHI 団地 ~ A sneak peak at my new series exploring massive public housing projects in Japan, known as DANCHI. . . . . #DANCHI #CBJE #CodyEllingham #団地 #wtns #newtopographics #noicemag #subjectivelyobjective #phroommagazine #broadmag #lekkerzine #paperjournalmag #ifyouleave #verybusymag #thisaintartschool #rentalmag #somewheremagazine #collecmag A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Feb 14, 2018 at 4:56am PST Join me on a journey into the world of Japanese Public Housing, known as DANCHI,  but which many people call home. 「DANCHI 団地」 A New Series by Cody Ellingham (CBJE) A post shared by CODY ELLINGHAM (@cbje_tokyo) on Feb 12, 2018 at 2:03pm PST The hour has struck 5pm, a short melody rings out over the loudspeaker with an eerie echo.
