Japanese People - Shibuya 1000

Caption: Commuters walk by the art project “shibuya 1000” at Shibuya Station in Tokyo. The project, which displays “1,000 faces of people in Shibuya,” is being held to mark the redevelopment of the station and changing face of Shibuya. The exhibit will run through Oct 13. (from Japan Today - Picture of the Day, 10/7/08)

For more information, see the exhibition web site (in Japanese):

Can portraits of 1,000 different faces by 20 photographers in the trendy and central area of Shibuya in Tokyo capture "the face of the nation?" What do you think? Could you do a similar project in Osaka?

This reminds me, how's the photography law and ethics in Japan thingie coming along? Enquiring minds want to know.
