adjacent.future aka Matteo Carella is an independent photographer from Torre Annunziata (a town near Naples, Italy). Tokyo is one of his favorite places to capture pictures, both day and night.
I have travelled extensively, but Asia is quite a different experience. My first visit to Japan was in 2015 when I travelled to Tokyo. When I returned home, it felt like I had lived a long, beautiful dream
Stuart A. Kauffman, the author of At Home in the Universe, is the inspiration behind the name adjacent.future for his project.
Originally, the term “adjacent possible” was introduced: a kind of shadow future hovering at the edges of the present, a map of all the different ways the present might be reimagined.
“At the beginning, I was not even interested in photography. I just took random shots as travel memories, but trip after trip (I try to visit Japan at least once a year) I started accumulating tons of pictures I wanted to use, to give life to. Influenced by movies like Lost In Translation, Blade Runner, In The Mood For Love, or anime-like Your Name and Evangelion, which are permeated with vaporwave, cyberpunk, scifi and outrun aesthetic, I started playing around with the Lightroom app, editing my pictures and opening an Instagram channel. One year after I started this project, my page had reached around 10K followers”.
