A unique photography series exploring the Danchi housing projects of Tokyo. Introduced in the 1960s as a safe, affordable and modern alternative to traditional wooden houses, Danchi were the future of housing in changing society. Fast forward half a century and many are worn, decaying and some have been demolished. Cody Ellingham explores Danchi by night – recording their continued role as homes to many, as well as a standing monument to the dreams of times gone by.
The exhibition will only last two days and will be held in an abandoned factory-turned-gallery in the heart of Old Tokyo. The opening party will be held on Saturday evening and is open to all, with free drinks and selected works available.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice.
