CONTAX 645 - ILFORD HPS 800
Loosely translated "Omotenashi" means something like the subjugation of self in service to a guest, without being “servile”.
Japanese use it to describe what they believe is their unique approach to hospitality. This moment at Fuglen is that notion in action. Whilst shooting a lot of the venues I had my fair share of time to observe the culture, particularly in cafes. Observing this moment, the way they engage and the mutual respect left me pondering what it means to be served.
