Dekotora: Stunning Kitsch-decorated Trucks In Japan Photographed By Todd Antony

If you find yourself driving down a highway in Japan, you might pass what looks like an actual Transformer. No, you’re not crazy. These tricked-out transports belong to a niche DIY semi truck culture called Dekotora, in which long-haul drivers add custom graphics, lights and swag to their vehicles on a level that goes way beyond a couple decals. With some Dekotora customizations costing up to $100,000, many of these dedicated DIY designers see their vehicles as spiritual extensions of their identity. Photographer Todd Antony gives us a better look at these mobile light shows through a series of photographs that capture both the trucks and their owners.
