This Is What It Looks Like To Pass Out Drunk On The Streets Of Tokyo

In his series 'The Drunk', photographer Lee Chapman captures moments of black-out drunkenness on the streets of Tokyo.

Public drunkenness is generally tolerated in Japan with drunks being left alone to sleep off their hazy state. As night fades into day, commuters simply step around the bodies leftover from the night before.

Drunken businessmen lie on subway benches, partiers are passed out on the bar floor, and (mostly) upstanding citizens lie sprawled in the street, cuddling trash for a pillow. The aftermath is brutal, yet common enough.

Tokyo moves on with its day, ignoring the unconscious drunks, allowing them to sober up in their own time.

Chapman's work focuses specifically on Japan. You can follow his work here on Instagram.
