This is a series of entertainers' portraits under the pandemic in Japan. According to the announcement Pia Research Institutes, specializing in Japanese entertainment, the size of the entertainment market in 2020 was decreased 80% from the previous year. Many entertainers had to cancelled or postponed their performances due to the pandemic. So we photographed their portraits. We chose a shooting location where the artists were most active during the pandemic, such as their houses, dance studios, and so on. We believe that shooting their portraits will be a record of performers under pandemic.
