Sohei Nishino, 1982, Japan, has made 100 thousands of images, yet only has 12 photographs in his portfolio. The way he works only permits him to finish three images in one year. He walks in a city for a month or longer, photographing all the buildings from every possible angle. In the following months he hand prints a selection of several thousand images to piece them all together with scissors and glue to make one single map of that city.
