Pawel Jaszczuk's take on Tokyo

Polish-born photographer, pawel Jaszczuk, six-year resident of tokyo, has found inspiration in the customary public displays of sleeping citizens in this bustling metropolis.

But the tiny details that attest to each of these suited gents indeed being another person emphasise the phenomenon that this in fact is.
