Really Disturbing Images That Reveal The Unseen Side Of Alcohol Abuse

Really Disturbing Images That Reveal The Unseen Side Of Alcohol Abuse

Lee Chapman captures the consequences of excessive drinking that alcohol commercials would never show.

Lee Chapman is a British photographer who arrived in Tokyo in 1998 for a year or two and has been living there ever since. The project highlights the dark effects of consuming alcohol. Alcohol commercials portray a common notion that people enjoy themselves better and are way more confident after it's intake than they usually are. But what they conveniently hide is how these people look, after they've had one too many drinks. Chapman went around on the streets of Tokyo to capture these very moments that are definitely not a sight you would want to see. This project does not focus mainly on Japanese people with a drinking problem but how excessive drinking is indeed a universal problem.
