Remo Camerota takes us through his brilliant book on Japanese graffiti, and on to his follow-up release (which wasn't out at the time this presentation was done) on Japanese manhole covers, titled Drain Spotting. Remo currently has a Kickstarter campaign for a new project.
The Best Camera

@ VOL 132
ON JAN 27, 2016
"It's a bit embarrassing to talk about the tools like this, but this comes back to, after using 1000's of cameras, what I think the best camera is. I think the best camera is...."
What's the best camera ever made? Notorious photography hack and noted local yokel, Brian Scott Peterson ought to know. After all, in the course of 20 years of making photos, nearly 1000 cameras and lenses, have passed through his possession. In "The Best Camera" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 132, he shares some musings on the most treasured of his arguably modest collection, focussing in on the very best one.

Tom Bode is a Portland native, entrepreneur, music composer, and photographer who loves fishing and Pacific NW history.
In the early 1990's, Tom began selling instant photos on the streets of Seattle using his grandfather's old Polaroid Land Camera 250. Over the next dozen or so years he took thousands of instant portraits around the NW and saw both Polaroid and Fuji films go out of production. Tom has been asked to speak about his experiences with instant films and why he believes they are having a comeback in popularity.

Remo Camerota is all over PechaKucha these days. On top of appearing at the last two PechaKucha Nights in Tokyo -- with his own presentation on his new book Drainspotting at Vol. 73, and then popping on stage at last week's Vol. 74 during Vivienne U.H. Doan's "Beautified Taboo" presentation -- he should also be talking about his latest projects (of which he has tons) at an upcoming PKN in Sydney. What you see pictured is an example of Remo's "Polaroid Project," in which he composes three-part polaroid portraits of people -- he's already had a show in New York, with famed photographer Nobuyoshi Araki as one of his subjects. Above, our dear PK co-founder Mark Dytham, keeping things covered. Below, yours truly.
