Tsukiji fish market

A new project, a collaboration with Japanese photographer Megumi Asaoka started on Thursday. It is about Tsukiji fish market, the largest fish market in the world that has been operating in the Tsukiji area of Tokyo since 1935. The market will be moved to a new location in Toyosu from November 2016. Till then, myself and Megumi want to photograph the last of this famous market in its current location that carries the history of generations of people who have been working there. The combinations of our different views on the market, should create an interesting result.

I post some of the first photos I shot mainly related to tuna, the auctions and shops that sell it:
