For the first time, I hadn’t stepped on dirt in a month. No longer said, “Hi,” to people on the streets. And, sure as fuck, couldn’t tell you my neighbour’s name. Friday nights in an empty apartment, wondering how it's possible to feel isolated around so many people.
I travelled to the Tokyo subway system and tried to capture a bit of that experience: Alone with Everyone.
