Japan's Custom Lamborghini Legend

Japan's Custom Lamborghini Legend

Shinichi Morohoshi is Tokyo's self-made Lamborghini king, a man who built an empire on the back of repeated tragedies. His heavily customized supercars capture the over-the-top style of Kabukichō, winning him fans and detractors worldwide. But a prison sentence, a horrible accident, and bankruptcy nearly cost him everything. VICE visits Morohoshi’s Fighting Star garage to see how he rose to fame by consistently going against the grain.

TADAIMA - SURFING feat. Ryusuke Ishidate (Ep.5)

TADAIMA - SURFING feat. Ryusuke Ishidate (Ep.5)

The fifth piece of a series of spontaneous night encounters, seized and captured by Issam Kechouri. In the fifth episode of the Tadaima series, Issam ventured into the streets of his favourite neighbourhood in Tokyo, Koenji. After meeting a group of smartly dressed men and women in the 365 shot bar, he discovered one of them to be surfer Ryusuke Ishidate. A collaboration was agreed and with the help of two friends, the piece illustrates the connection of man and water, and of the connection between artist and athlete. The video engages with Issam’s understanding of Tadaima; to be at home in the moment, and at home with another through the combination of their two passions: art and surfing. ABOUT TADAIMA: For either a shot of self-contemplation or a cocktail of casual conversation, the intimate bars of Tokyo represent the unique social rhythm of the city. For director Issam Kechouri, it was within the walls of Tokyo’s hole-in-the-wall bars where creative inspiration poured from the individuals that he met. Fascinated by documentary filmmaking and the individuality of artists, Issam’s most recent project, Tadaima, is a collection of videos and still moments that focus on an opportunistic form of collaboration. To him, it represents his passion for the introductions he makes with unique individuals, as though it were a destined opportunity, a sense of feeling at home with a stranger, and sharing their stories through the lens of his camera in the immediate moment of their encounter.
