Notorious, fascinating and really quite strange project, shot at night on an infrared in Tokyo’s Document Park. Cited in Parr and Badger vol.2. ‘Document Park is a brilliant piece of social documentation, catching perfectly the loneliness, sadness and desperation that so often accompany sexual or human relationships in a big, hard metropolis like Tokyo.’ Quite brilliant.
