Whether lounging in city parks or snapping photos at a popular tourist trap, the subjects of Japanese photographer Nobuto Osakabe‘s series Holiday Making appear as miniature caricatures bustling across the sprawling scenery. Examining the art of leisure time, Osakabe indirectly highlights key characteristics of Japanese culture and tradition. Each human pinprick roams ant-like across the frame, participating in identical mundane vacation activities. It is Japan’s population density that allows for larger considerations of contemporary freedom and identity. Despite the daily grind and our desire to ‘just be ourselves,’ Holiday Making hints that, even at play, we are all creatures of a predictable assembly.
