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.
The unbearable chatterbox that they become under its influence.
Well, the pavement seems quite comfy!
No tattoos for you, Sir.
When lying down properly is a task in itself.
So close, yet so far!
Hungover work days are the worst.
I feel for him.
She'll be home in a few hours
Let's focus all our energy.
He's totally wasted!
We keep saying that to ourselves.
When you have a home and you're unable to enter it because of your state.
No one will take responsibility for your actions.
He could've been robbed easily!
They are in this together.
Shopping for some sober life.
What a public nuisance.
Know your limits.
He can't even make out who's who!
Who's laughing now?
When it's the last stop and you're unwilling to deboard.
Don't let alcohol consume you.
