The blog of Tokyo based photographer and photojournalist, Damon Coulter

Cosmopolitan

Gawd bless er 

No not a great, big-headed post about a photo job for this famous, iconic magazine…unfortunately.

No I`m using the more usual definition. Being a foreigner here in Tokyo still gets you the odd stare but the city is getting quite multi -cultural of late. There are, I`m noticing, quite a lot more of us gaijin around and that can only be a good thing for the life of a city. Take London for example which is reckoned to be one of the most vibrant , exciting and culturally diverse (and expensive) cities in the world. To prove that fact two British comedians called Owen Powell and Alex Horne set themselves the challenge of meeting a person from every single one of the 192 countries that are officially recognised by the U.N. who also happens to be living and “working” in London.

Their blog is called The world in One City and is a collection of stories and musing on encounters with a very global collection of people. It is also a good piece of developing journalism about 21st century London and the people who inhabit it. The count so far is 116. Have a look.
