The images are part of series titled ‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’.
Earlier this year Gold Panda released his third album, the excellent‘Good Luck And Do Your Best’.
You may have read that the feel of the record was informed by a trip Derwin made to Japan with photographer Laura Lewis back in 2014. The pair said they fell in love with the suburban charms of the cities they visited during their travels.
The album’s title, now of the book as well, comes from the parting phrase a taxi driver said to them when they left his car in Hiroshima. The sentiment stuck with them and formed the basis for the whole thing.
Check out some exclusive images from the project below – there’s a couple of others that you’ll recognise too, including the artwork from the album. Gold Panda and Laura Lewis have helpfully supplied some words with each photo to guide you through.
