Uchibori has been photographing and documenting demolition sites in Tokyo for over a decade while working on films as a still photographer.
This book, “TOKYO GHOST BUSTERS,” is a collection of about 200 of Uchibori's photographs of demolition sites. In recent years, many famous buildings from the prewar and postwar periods have been demolished. Demolition sites are usually enclosed, and we don't see them being torn down. Uchibori has visited the sites and photographed the other side of the enclosures without a viewfinder. It can be said to be a record of Tokyo's ongoing metabolism as a city.
