Born in France in 1964, Bruno Quinquet worked as a recording engineer in Paris for 20 years before starting photography in Japan. He graduated from Tokyo Visual Arts photography department, and was granted an artist visa. He now lives in Tokyo where he established the Bureau d’Etudes Japonaises.
In October 2006, after witnessing the mysterious presence of an office worker in a forest near Mount Fuji, Bruno Quinquet conceived the “Salaryman Project”. In this photo series, Tokyo’s male office workers are pictured as exotic creatures constantly escaping the gaze of the camera.The action -or lack of it- unfolds around the changing seasons in the Japanese capital. Beyond the daily routine, these fleeting moments may reveal deeper aspects of the structure and politics of Japanese society.
From 2012 to 2014, this body of work has been published as an illustrated Japanese professional agenda.
