Online bottles/Kodak Salon

Oh, this sounds rather useful: online bottles. Who said everything has been done already on the net?

Seen on the way to the Kodak salon in Ginza, where I popped in over my lunch break. They have a Kodak club show of some decent amateur shots and an artistic series of images by Yoshie Akita. Basically they are several shots of mostly nude, tattooed or shaved women, some on the beach against the sunset, but most in the studio. There’s also a booklet called “Baby”, more or less the same stuff just featuring a baby. Lots of skin on a white studio background conveyed a real sterile image, certainly not sensual in the affectionate sense. I don’t know whether this was intentional or not, but overall I couldn’t get much out of it.
