The unique subculture of Japanese jazz cafés is the pictorial subject off photographer Philip Arneill's keen eye, as depicted in Tokyo Jazz Joints, a nominee for the JJA's 2024 Jazz Book of the Year Award. Interviewed on the JJA's podcast The Buzz. Photojournalist Arneill, Belfast-born and -based again after a Japanese sojourn, has insights into a society he found to be complex, on the margins, and likely to vanish. A rare glimpse into an unusual topic. Hrayr Attarian, a Chicago street-photographer, is an apt host.
