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.
