Overview participating exhibitions
Nowhere in the world is the pressure of work as great as it is in Tokyo. The 'salary men', wage slaves who flock to the offices in droves early in the morning, pull twelve-hour days and are then expected to accompany the boss to dinners and drinking bouts. Some office workers become so exhausted that they fall asleep in the middle of the street. Pawel Jaszczuk recorded them in images which at first sight are amusing, but on further reflection are tragic.
Pawel Jaszczuk (Poland, 1978) graduated from the School of Visual Arts in Sydney, Australia, and presently lives and works in Japan. His series Kinky City and Salaryman have been shown worldwide, from China to Germany.
