Sometimes I like the idea of being in business, I’d definitely dress a lot smarter in their no-nonsense, no-denim environment and I’d probably feel a lot more efficient and proactive.

Still, an insight into this world is always welcome especially when it’s done so well. Photographer Bruno Quinquet provides us with just this, in his series called Salaryman Project, which observes the Japanese office worker in Tokyo’s landscape. With their faces obscured, mystery is created as we peek at them through frosted windows and peer over their shoulder at lunch. About to be published as a book, the photos have been paired brilliantly and allow us to see these businessmen as more than just a bunch of suits.
