Photographer Yuki Aoyama recently caught my eye with a photographic book entitled Solaryman,
her idea is to capture the individual behind the suit. Since I myself have been recently coerced into a suit I found it particularly liberating, each photo gives us a nice glimpse of the salary man as he leaps into the air away on a short trip out of reality. Humour, creativity, playfulness and attitude are briefly emblazoned across their faces. It's really quite lovely, usually you will only see stony faces when you see those guys. Japan seems like such a serious place.
