A crowd formed unconsciously in the same place at the same time. Using a sociological approach, this is classified into several small groups according to certain rules. Then they will be seen that each one has its own characteristics. And in the process, we also notice that there are people who do not belong to any group. Their intentions, behaviors, and psychological states are clearly different from those of the group. Focusing on these people and analyzing them from a behavioral psychology point of view, the real humans emerged from them.
These are their stories, just like you and me.

Taisuke Sato was born in Nagoya, Japan in 1969
After graduating from the Department of Sociology at Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan, he worked in housing sales and management for a major Japanese housing company. He turned to photography when he was fifty.
His main theme is the relationship between himself, people, and society. In his work, he presents a methodology that takes a multifaceted view of human life and society and transforms it into a "Acceptance of impermanence”.
