The Bravest Japanese Lad We Met… with Ryoji S from Yokohama
I have no idea how Ryoji found us. On our third day shooting in Yokohama I got a message from him on Grindr saying he wanted to do a photoshoot. Someone must have pointed him in my direction I suppose, but it didn’t matter where he came from. It was so hard to find guys in Yokohama so I was happy to have anyone. Straightaway we scheduled to meet the next day by Shin-Takashima station, where we found him outside riding in circles on his bicycle. We explored the area shooting as he changed into various pieces of clothing, all from Hollister (he worked there), until he did something that for Japan was totally shocking and revolutionary – he took his shirt off! Wow, Ryoji, truly the bravest Japanese lad we met!
