Fukushima works as a delivery man in a company delivering lunch boxes to senior citizens. By bringing his camera into this occupational setting he explores themes surrounding an aging society, along with matters of life and death. Fukushima says, “It is actually horrifying to me to stare into the eyes of the elderly. Photography serves as a way to release from me from fear.” Through this series, Fukushima faces scenarios not ordinarily faced in our daily lives, through his images we are forced to confront a different state of existence and some undeniable truths about fate.
