The only thing that comes to mind is Love Collage (aka Collage of our Life),
by Yukihiko Tsutsumi. It's sort of a detective story, I guess, but not in a
hard boiled way, it's just a guy from Tokyo looking for the girl he loves in
NYC. It's about photography as well. It's all right, but nothing overly
great. Ryoko Hirosue and Ryuhei Matsuda are the leads.
