Photo and haiku by Kuniharu Shimizu


One of our asssignments is to photograph notable examples of store renovation. We walk around the SOHO district, looking for possibilities, like The Apple Store. Originally a post office, then a hardware shop, the building now houses a flashy computer store. No photograph, the storekeeper says, for security reasons. We move on and try Prada. Talk to the head office first, says the manager. No time, we leave early next morning.
