Greedy Otherworld

The streets of Tokyo are lined with show windows decorated with advertising photographs, and the pedestrians reflected in them seem to be under the control of human desire. And the figure seemed to be a projection of myself.
The advertising images that flood the streets promote purchasing intent and change people's attitudes and even behavior. I myself have moved from the rural areas to the cities, as if drawn by the vortex of desire unleashed by the consumer society.
Is the desire created and used by capitalism healthy for human beings and their environment?

Born in Japan, 1986. He became interested in photography as a means of expressing questions he had in contact with society and people, and started his artistic career in 2019.
