Irritable Wife

A big chunk of Japanese society is constituted of what are called "salary men". Similarly to white collars in the West, they are office clerks who usually spend most of their time at the office. It's not unusual that salary men end up drinking with colleagues after work, while their wives languish at home.

Alexis Clerc

"I am an amateur photographer from France, originally from the Paris suburb. Humble beginnings, I started taking photos after my father gave me his old film camera, a Nikon F. Photography only really became a passion years later, when a girlfriend showed me the work of Martin Parr and his series The Last Resort. My taste for travel and my job as a designer led me to live in different parts of the world. After a year in San Francisco, a few months in Moscow, an extensive chunk of life in London, and a couple of years spent in Japan, I finally came back to France and set base in Paris. I find it difficult to tell I work with a particular approach because I am opportunistic and behave much like a tourist, carrying a camera almost everywhere, and snapping whatever I find interesting. However I like to borrow from different approaches, from photojournalism or documentary photography, to still life or landscape photography. I take photos because I have a visual memory and because photography helps me challenging the way I see the world. Walking around and taking pictures is a good way to make sense of where I live. I also like to see photography as the opposite process to writing. With text, you can write a narrative and help your reader picturing it by describing appearances with words. With photography, you create appearances that enable viewers to create their own narrative."
