@ VOL 92 ON MAY 30, 2012

In October 2006, as he was taking photos of nature in the forest near Kawaguchiko, a salaryman with a suitcase appeared on the track. Ever since that day, Bruno Quinquet has tried to investigate the mysteries of office work in Japan through photography. He has exhibited this series in Japan and abroad. In 2012, he launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the production of the "Salaryman Project Business Schedule 2013."

 Blue-Sky Painting

BY CLAUDE FRANCHETEAU
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau

Dancing in the Office

BY YULIA SKOGOREVA
@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

"For me, dancers represent freedom, while salarymen represent something opposite. I like to create this interaction."

In Dancing in the Office from PKN Tokyo Vol. 136, photographer Yulia Skogoreva found herself on an interesting and unexpected path that took her from linguistics, to dance, to photography. In her latest project she juxtaposes two completely opposite elements of society, busy salarymen and dancers, and the results are delightful. Have a look! 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, June 17th, 2016.
