Todd’s latest personal project looks at the dekotora culture within Japan.

Dekotora is a type of extravagantly decorated truck in Japan.

Each truck is highly personalised, and owners often spend thousands of pounds embellishing their trucks exactly to their liking. ‘You can express your way of life, your hometown, your family, all through the decorations,’ explains Junichi Tajima, the leader and chairman of Utamaro Kai, a national association of dekotora drivers.
