The district of Harajuku in Tokyo is famous for its street style, particularly among its teenage girls, as most documented by Japanese street-snaps magazine FRUiTS. Every day the sidewalks and thoroughfares are flooded with evidence of myriad subcultures: punk, Lolita, the latest pastel-pajama trend, and countless others. I recently spent an afternoon with one of Harajuku’s coolest girl gangs—Hirari, Juria, Momo, Maya, Elle, and Coi—and photographed them as they showed me their favorite hang-out spots and gave me a glimpse into their magical world. Trying to capture them on film as they showed me some of their favorite hang-out spots was a challenge at times—I felt like a wildlife photographer trying to get a shot of a rare species of bird. They were a whirlwind of hyperactivity, which ended up being what I liked best about this shoot.
