Happy Coincidence

Happy Coincidence is a photo series made in Japan focusing on the contrast of tradition versus modernity and the accidental beautiful moments that this contrast generates.

“Is there anything in this world that is not coincidental? I don’t think so. Of course you can come up with enough reasons for everything afterwards and give an explanation. But how and when something starts is nothing more than a coincidence. Always."
