Photographer Captures Powerful Photos Of Drunks In Japan, Shows The Nasty Side Of Alcohol

Usually, you are shown the fun side of alcohol. You see a confident person with a good sense of humour enjoying life with a bottle in hand. What this promotional content does not show you is the nasty side of this addiction. A British photographer, Lee Chapman, geared up to broaden the horizon of the wonderland and have captured the dark side of alcohol addiction. Lee caught horrific displays of alcohol affliction on the streets of Tokyo after a party.

Lee arrived in Tokyo back in 1998 and had stayed ever since in the beautiful city. Over the years, he got a chance to know and capture the different layers of the largest city and capital of Japan.

Alcohol addiction is by no means a Japan-specific problem. The pictures, however, are a chance for all of us to understand the gravity of the issue. It’s true that the solution to addictions like that is not simple. So, a representation like this by Lee can help us all for having a good reason not to experience this first hand.
