Osaka is the third most populated city in Japan, with an extremely active nightlife, with bars, restaurants and nightclubs that both locals and foreigners go to (In this picture: friends having fun in psytrance club, in Shinsaibashi, Osaka).

Most photographic and artistic works developed in Japan focus on putting the capital, Tokyo, under the spotlight, but this project goes under a different path (In this picture: a dragqueen portrait in a gay club in Doyama, Osaka).
04_LC_OsakaNightlife_LucasGibson_Dansu
In a country of millenary habits, and with a reputation for clinging to hierarchy, this project aims to showcase an often unexplored aspect of Japanese culture by documenting young people celebrating in a society strongly connected to tradition.

The dualism of society is shown through their defiance of cultural norms and taboos such as tattoos, piercings, gender issues and sexual orientation (In this picture: a tattooed woman in Doyama, Osaka).
05_LC_OsakaNightlife_LucasGibson_Yakuza
These images show people having fun, daring to be themselves even in a society that threaten to exclude or segregate them (In this picture: a dragqueen performing in Doyama, Osaka).
