TEPPEI MIKI -Tokyo Gig Photography-
Born and bread in Japan, I’ve got really stuck into the rich underground music scene in this country for long years. In my young days, I could luckily find out that there were lots of amazing people and fantastic noise in the world of Punk Rock. Everything in the basement was so sick to me. It was a nice place for killing time and even as a school of way of life for me.
Much time have passed, and I impulsively decided to shoot awesome bands around me to pack an atmosphere of the venue and save the memory. I got no photography education ever in the past, but I started to learn by imitating my friend photographer. From that time, I’ve been continuing gig-photography mainly based in Tokyo, just as a recording matter of the scene away from the mainstream.
Anyway, I think undoubtedly that I’m nothing as a photographer. I just wanna make people who see my photos feel whole of noise, smell of sweat and hot air full of the venue and know what a cool place it is.
Underground is a king, right?
Peace and love
