This year the judging will be carried out by editor’s from a number of photography magazines, so the final selection won’t simply be a popularity contest. That’s good news.

Japanese youth are constantly pushing the boundaries in search of a new style. It’s a competitive world if you want to originate something. I think some guys deliberately parody the “edgy” fashions (e.g., the so-called “Senta-gai” or “Center Guy’s” look like parodies to me…). I don’t know whether this guy is parodying, expressing, experimenting, or what. Welcome to Harajuku.
