In October 2006, after witnessing the mysterious presence of an office worker dressed in suit in a forest near Mount Fuji, I conceived the “Salaryman Project”. In this photo series, Tokyo’s male office workers (aka salarymen) are pictured as exotic creatures constantly escaping the gaze of the camera. The action -or lack of it- unfolds around the changing seasons in the Japanese capital. Beyond the daily routine, these fleeting moments may reveal deeper aspects of Japanese society.
