A few weeks ago I got an email from Atsushi Fujiwara offering to send me three issues of the magazine that he publishes, Asphalt, edited by Akira Hasegawa. Hasegawa is a bit of a legendary photo-editor in Japan so I was intrigued. A few days later Asphalt II, III and IV showed up in Paris. The magazine follows a 2 permanent photographers + 1 guest format that gives it a strong personal aesthetic while keeping things interesting. If you like what you see from the spreads above, I recommend heading over to Japan Exposures to read their excellent post on Asphalt and I think they’ll even sell you a copy if you’re nice.
