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.
