My name is Lukasz Kazimierz Palka. I am a street photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. For many years, I have been exploring the city and photographing its inhabitants. I draw inspiration from the masters of street photography as well as from works of science fiction such as Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Deus Ex, and Neuromancer. Through my chosen medium for self-expression I strive to tell my own stories.
These days, I extend my urban forays vertically onto the rooftops of the Tokyo. This project, L’appel du Vide, or 'the call of the void' is an exploration of the unseen world above the streets—a quiet and serene landscape of concrete, glass, and steel.
I am available for hire for photographic projects of various sort, but in particular: documentary, editorial, and journalism.
We believe that photography can be fun and easy to learn, all while exploring the amazing cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. We provide coaching and feedback on your photography in a friendly atmosphere.
Come explore our cities with us, improve your shots, and simply have a great time. It would be my pleasure to lead and teach.
