Salaryman.

Photographs by Pawel Jaszczuk.
Morel Publishing, 2009. 32 pp., Illustrated throughout, 5¼x8".



Publisher's Description
Salaryman is a Japanese term suggesting the white-collar worker. It also carries associations of long working hours, low prestige in the corporate hierarchy, wage slavery, and karo-shi (death by overwork!).

After working overtime six days a week, one would assume the only relief would be the age-old tradition of “existential purging” -and thus, these guys drink till they drop!

Pawel Jaszczuk has spent that last months, at ungodly hours seeking these hopeless leftovers of a night on a binge.

The zine is covered by intricate Chiyogami (Japanese hand screen printed paper), but once past this apparent, contrasting, cover up of appearances, one finds a wasteland of sprawled out workers -the true expense of the corporate Juggernaut!

Call it schadenfreude or just plain immature, but one smirks when they notice a “salaryman” has wet himself....
