Thomas Joel - Thursday, November 30, 2017

Stone Bridge Cafe is a bi-weekly online series from Stone Bridge Press devoted to bringing readers short stories, poems, non-fiction pieces, photographs, and artwork from and/or about East Asia. For submission guidelines and info, follow the link at the bottom of this post.

On the menu this week is a collection of strikingly human photographs taken by photographer Neil Mishalov in 1968 and 1969 while 

on active duty in the U.S. Army. 

During his Korean tour of duty, Mishalov had the opportunity to visit Japan twice; during November 1968 and also during March 1969. 
Below are some of the photos that he took while there.
