My name is David Tesinsky. When I was visiting Japan I made series of images inspired by Japanese businessmen. I named it after my favorite band's song: Kraftwerk: "The Man-Machine". I found it fitting because the Japanese businessmen are a lot like the robots.

For years they would go out drinking with colleagues and clients, returning home drunk at 2 am before rising at dawn to head back to the office. Sometimes they just sleep in the streets because they cannot afford a taxi as they are only the sheep of the huge corporates. They work daily 14 hours or even more.

They are walking in the streets like ghosts self centered deeply focused at their own career that isn't very bright but their visions are different. "Only 5 more years and I will get to the higher position in this neverending pyramid".

The guy looks like he's either checking out the photographer or trying to contemplate how to murder him without getting caught.

"... and then the boss walked in and saw me sleeping for the 3rd time this month, and he went off like a Dragon on New Years nightnwith about 50 fire crackers up its backside. He was calling me names of things I've never even heard of before. You shudda been there. It was over the top classic Godzilla vs. the Lilliputians, but I'm still working there. Can you believe it???

Yes indeed. There is even a crisis in Japan of people who are no longer interested in getting married, having children or having sex. Yes, sex... Their way of living practically turns them off.

The guy with the receding hair line on the left is wondering whether or not he should say hello to his boss (guy on his left) while they are on the train. He was hoping to get a few more minutes of shut eye on the way to work.

He looks awake. Must have gotten a good nights sleep on the table at the 24 hour McDonalds. I don't even see the red spot in the middle of his forehead any more.

Should have worn sunglasses. Them, no one could tell if he was sleeping or not.

He's thinking, "Oh no, not the girl with the big purse. That's like fitting 2 more people in here."

... as the rhythmic movements of the train eventually lulls every passenger into a haze of sleepiness that no one can resist.
