I was travelling on the train from Yokohama to central Tokyo, while the car was emptying I could observe the image of a young man sleeping in his seat, exactly in front of me: his long hair and the shape of his face made me think that it was a teenage girl rather than a young man; he, as a well educated Japanese, kept his body very upright while sleeping. Then I decided to photograph him and later try to transform that image digitally. I'd discovered him as the live image of a "Japanese sleeping beauty".
