This series of photographs were taken by Shizuka Yokomizo in the 90s. Yokomizo never met her subjects, but posted a note through each of their doors requesting that they stand in their window on a certain day at a specific time. These encounters seem to effect the subjects in different ways. While one stranger appears curious at his window in his boxers, another seems more preoccupied with his appearance. The mystery of the photographs, somewhat enhanced by the silent agreement that predicates them, is intriguing. Why did these people want to be photographed?
