Gion (祇園) is Kyoto’s most famous geisha district. At night maiko or geiko are often hard to spot, which adds to the allusive atmosphere surrounding their history.

I decided to capture the abstract qualities that surround their work, as well as the bright lights in the dark areas that seem to dot in and out of the alleyways in Gion, Kyoto.
