Shibuya CrossingEach image is made from a unique Japanese paper known as pachika, developed by paper company Takeo.
The characteristics of the paper are such that when heated, the surface turns transparent.
Takami works with a small group of skilled craftsmen who utilize a heat press to create each embossed image by hand.
