Jumping Japanese.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Yuki Aoyama's stereotype-shattering photos of jumping Japanese businessmen — some of them pictured alongside their school-aged daughters — are nothing short of perfect. (They're also the subject of a book published last year, entitled Daughter and Solaryman.) See more on the artist's website, here.

I don't think I could love anything more than this.

Where are the women? Is it the case that there are no women in business in Japan? These pictures are far from perfect, I'd say.

How neat is that, actually it's one of my favourite aspects of Japanese culture that untamed element amongst a kept and polished society. I like that this photo series sums that up perfectly :)

I want one of me and my dad! great shots.

Perfect, yes.

Anon, what I took from the series was a lighthearted angle on one specific stereotype in Japanese culture — but that's an interesting point. Would definitely be interesting to see a similar set of images that feature women, as well.

Natalie, I'd love to see that :)
