March in silence
Project info

In 2020, Japan's approach to Covid-19 was characteristic. Statistically, the number of people dying from Covid-19 in Japan was smaller than other countries, about 3,500 in 2020. However, the society was truly in turmoil. I think because the government could not regulate the activities of citizens under Japanese law. Therefore, we had to determine our behaviors by ourselves. Some said infection measures were top priority, others said economic crisis was more serious. The government enforced quarantine and economic measures alternately. In the process, people accepted the pandemic little by little. I thought it was like a march in silence. By the series of photos, I expressed the power of people overcoming the crisis.
