A picture of mine was published in one of last month’s Bloomberg Businessweek issues, a US weekly economical magazine.
The article deals with the consequences of BP disaster on bluefin tuna.
The picture was taken during the night at Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo.
Tsukiji market is the biggest fish market in Japan. For my first time there, I wanted to document the whole process of the tuna sale. At 1:00 am, I went through Tokyo by bicycle and spent the night in the middle of fish stocks.
The tuna market is officially not open to the public (except for auctions between 5:30 am and 6:30 am) and I did not ask for any press access in advance. But it was so early that I did not meet any policeman, except around 4:00 am. He asked me to leave but did not follow me. I turned into another alley of the market and kept on shooting.
