Shibuya, Shibuya, by Yasuhiro Ishimoto

Published in 2007, this book features images Ishimoto shot at the famed "Shibuya Crossing" intersection in the Shibuya district of Tokyo between 2003 - 2006. For the most part Ishimoto shoots his subjects from behind, which at first blush would seem to be a cop out. But via the clothing -- especially the various images and text of t-shirts -- and hair and shoes we get a melange of imagery and representation which is both abstract and concrete (often literally the concrete sidewalk) at the same time.
