Tokyo-Ga Charity photo book

I recently contributed some photos to the Tokyo-Ga Charity Photo book, which is now completed and on sale.
39 fantastic photographers from around the world donated photographs in the hope of raising money to help the victims of the 3/11 Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.

From the Tokyo-Ga website:-

The men and women of Tokyo Ga want you to understand the book you’re looking at is a labor of love. Photographers from all over the world pay tribute here to Tokyo, the biggest city in the world. It’s more than just a home for us– it’s a way of life. We want to share something beautiful with you as well as put together a small means of helping the victims of the March 11th disaster, to whom this book is dedicated.

The website for the book, has more information here:- http://www.tokyogaga.com/

You can buy the book (surely the point of this whole endeavour) here:- http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2243940

Feel free to tweet/facebook/stumble/digg etc about the book and help us to raise some money for those people who lost everything in the devastating events of 3/11/2011.

It seems that although having a wealth of pictures from Japan, living here off and on since 2001 I along with a large number of others were not invited to participate. Perhaps we’re not Tokyo enough.

Having looked at the book I’m astounding with how it has no theme and doesn’t flow together at all.

Nathan, what the hell is your problem?

It’s a book put together for charity, by the members of a photo collective based in Tokyo, not an attempt at a comprehensive directory of Japan-based photographers.

“Having looked at the book I’m astounding with how it has no theme and doesn’t flow together at all. "

Fuck off and do your own book then.
Why slag on others who are trying to do something selfless for a good cause?

What sort of man would piss on a charity effort?
Attitudes like yours disgust me.

Though I know most of the people who put this together, lived in Japan for a dozen years, shot tens of thousands pictures there, I wasn’t invited to participate either.
Why?
Because I never joined that particular photo collective.
I’m guessing that you didn’t either…

Shit, I just deleted my reply on accident.

Moral of the story: Quit being so sensitive.
