Whether it’s students or professionals, commuting in Japan is the single worst experience anyone can have.

Photographer Michael Wolf’s latest photography piece entitled ‘Tokyo Compression’ captures the sweaty, claustrophobic experiences of commuters in Japan. Each photograph is composed of individuals pressed up against windows and doors of the subway train with expressions of discomfort and stress after a hard day’s work. It’s a minimalist series that captures a part of everyday life in Japanese culture.
